paperback    ISBN 13: 9780863566677 | ISBN 10: 0863566677

The Moghrabis have lived in Palestine for centuries. Near the end of the First World War, Ottoman soldier Kamel Moghrabi is imprisoned by his Turkish masters. Reunited with his family after being freed by British soldiers, he marries his childhood sweetheart Haniya.
 
But their happiness is shortlived as their homeland is ravaged by violence between the local Arab population and Jewish immigrants fleeing Europe. Any hope of an independent Palestine is shattered and the Moghrabis are forced to flee their home with its cherished olive groves.
 
Based on a true story, this family saga is a universal depiction of Palestinian life and culture with a warm and engaging love story at its heart.
