Text in Arabic. 1948: The lives of the Abulheja family are changed forever when they are forcibly removed from their ancestral home in Ein Hod and sent to live in a refugee camp in Jenin. Through Amal, the bright granddaughter of the patriarch, we witness the stories of her brothers: one, a stolen boy who becomes an Israeli soldier; and the other, who as a result of sacrificing everything for the Palestinian cause, becomes his brothers unwitting enemy. Amals own dramatic story weaves its way between these strands. This is a moving and powerful novel that will have an enormous impact on all those who read it.

    En mycket bra och gripande bok. Jag har läst den på svenska och givit bort den på arabiska. Hennes andra bok på svenska inte lika bra.

I have never before read such a fascinating novel on Palestine and Israel. It gives deep insights while affecting me emotionally as only great novels can do -- Henning Mankell I loved it ... what she's done is that great Jane Eyre thing: here is my life, here is a life, from the very beginning to its very end; here is her family and her heart, her people and her land. You travel with her on every page -- Carmen Callil The voice of Susan Abulhawa is honest, every word is heartfelt, the aim to honour history and acknowledge its facts. This book is a "tour" waiting to take with it all kinds of readers: the already converted, the uninformed, and especially those who are fortunate enough to live secure lives -- Hanan al-Shaykh Mornings In Jenin is a powerful and passionate insight into what many Palestinians have had to endure since the state of Israel was created. Susan Abulhawa guides us through traumatic events with anger and great tenderness too, creating unforgettable images of a world in which humanity and inhumanity, selflessness and selfishness, love and hate grow so close to each other -- Michael Palin Powerful and moving Stylist a terrifically affecting novel, thanks to Abulhawa's elegance as a writer. It's a novel to savor' - The Philadelphia Inquirer, US Abulhawa's writing shines... Friendship, adolescence, love: ordinary events, offset against extraordinary circumstances, make the story live' The Independent
