From the author of the international bestseller Mornings in Jenin comes a powerful, passionate story of a family separated by conflict, and the tragedy they endure 'The story Susan Abulhawa tells in this marvellous novel is hard to bear but impossible to ignore ... precise, courageous, and dazzling' Teju Cole 'Gripping and deeply moving Suffering and resilience are difficult things to witness, but this powerful, politically engaged novel does so with a transformative literary grace.' Independent on Sunday It is 1947, and Beit Daras, a rural Palestinian village, is home to the Baraka family oldest daughter Nazmiyeh, brother Mamdouh, beautiful, dreamy Mariam and their widowed mother. When Israeli forces descend, sending the village up in flames, the family must take the long road to Gaza, in a walk that will test them to their limits. Sixty years later, in America, Mamdouhs granddaughter Nur falls in love with a doctor. Following him to his work in Gaza, she meets Alwan, who will help Nur discover the ties of kinship that transcend distance and even death. Told with raw humanity, The Blue Between Sky and Water is a lyrical, devastatingly beautiful story of a familys relocation, separation, survival and love.

    Lina, 26 januari 2019

    Älskar författarens sätt att framföra handlingen på ett enkelt sätt.
    Susan Abulhawa är grym på att skriva böcker.
    Önskar att hon skrev fler böcker än vad hon gör.
    Handlingar i hennes böcker för oss närmare en annan verklighet som vi brukar missa.
    Rekommenderar hennes andra böcker.

The story Susan Abulhawa tells in this marvellous novel is hard to bear but impossible to ignore. Through four generations of a Palestinian family, The Blue Between Sky and Water shows how historys assault on each person is public, and how it nevertheless cannot extinguish the private experience of grief or the secret sense of eros. Abulhawa's vision is precise, courageous, and dazzling -- Teju Cole In true Thousand and One Nights style, Abulhawa surprises us by continually unfolding new stories Characters struggle to keep their secrets, but Abulhawa releases them. These are secrets we need to know, secrets that will educate us about ourselves, and Gaza * Guardian * Gripping and deeply moving Suffering and resilience are difficult things to witness, but this powerful, politically engaged novel does so with a transformative literary grace. Abulhawas prose is luminous; her control of a complex weaving of narrative voices young and old, male and female, magical and real is masterful. The novel provides an intimate close-up of the women of Gaza and of the everyday heroism amid relentless loss * Independent on Sunday * She is a fine observer of female kinship ... A powerful read * Financial Times * One of the most thought-provoking books Ive read written with passion, honesty and poetry * <i>Daily Mail</i> on <i>Mornings in Jenin</i> * Abulhawas writing shines Friendship, adolescence, love: ordinary events, offset against extraordinary circumstances, make the story live * Independent</b></i> * The writers pain and the beauty of her prose are very real * Daily Telegraph</b></i> * Powerful and moving * Stylist</b></i> * Powerful and passionate unforgettable -- Michael Palin Heartbreaking -- Esther Freud
