Mornings in Jenin

by Susan Abulhawa

Told through the voice of one family and primarily the youngest daughter, Amal, this is an unflinching account of the Palestinian experience from the birth of Israel to the end of the 20th century. The reader cannot help feel the anger, hurt, loss and the sense of isolation endured by Amal and her family - and her faith in family and friendship really makes you think about individual and personal stories at times of war and conflict

As the people of Ein Hod were marched into dispossession, Moshe and his comrades guarded and looted the newly emptied village. While Dalia lay heartbroken, delirious with the loss of Ismael, Jolanta rocked David to sleep. While Hasan tended to his familiy's survival, Moshe sang in drunken revelry with his fellow soldiers. And while Yehya and the others moved in anguished steps away from their land, the usurpers and 'Hatikva' and shouted 'Long live Israel'.
