Introduction

Amazon Best Seller in Historical Middle Eastern Fiction, Middle Eastern Literature, and Jewish Literature

For fans of, Khaled Hosseini, Anita Diamant, and Isabelle Allende comes a sweeping story of love, loss, and the power of loyalty in the face of conflicting ideologies and religious beliefs.

The story begins in 1940s Palestine where twins Rasheed and Rasheeda Dinar work in the family’s inn. When Rasheed falls in love with Natalia, a Jewish woman, he applies what he learned from the Jesuit priest who mentored him to his budding relationship but by then relations between Arabs and Jews have become tense. And when those tensions come to a breaking point, Natalia mysteriously disappears, and Rasheed and Rasheeda are chased out of Palestine forced to flee to Beirut, Lebanon.

As the years pass and the Dinar family expands and enters the 1970s, their convictions are tested. Until the family reunites and proves that the thin line separating people because of their differences is powerless against the strength of family, love, and loyalty.
