Publisher Description

A heart-wrenching, powerfully written novel: a Kite Runner for Palestine

'One of the most thought-provoking books I've read ... written with passion and honesty, and poetry' Daily Mail



Mornings in Jenin is a devastating novel of love and loss, war and oppression, and heartbreak and hope, spanning five countries and four generations of one of the most intractable conflicts of our lifetime.



Palestine, 1948. Half a million Palestinians are forced from their homes. A mother clutches her six-month-old son as Israeli soldiers march through the village of Ein Hod. In a split second, her son is snatched from her arms and the fate of the Abulheja family is changed forever.



Forced into a refugee camp in Jenin and exiled from the ancient village that is their lifeblood, the family struggles to rebuild their world. Their stories unfold through the eyes of the youngest sibling, Amal, the daughter born in the camp who will eventually find herself alone in the United States; the eldest son who loses everything in the struggle for freedom; the stolen son who grows up as an Israeli, becoming an enemy soldier to his own brother.



'The writer's pain - and the beauty of her prose - are very real' Telegraph

“This book will stay with you forever.“

Out of the many books I’ve read, only Mornings in Jenin has been capable of bringing me to genuine, unadulterated tears. Abulhawa does justice to a century and more of violent dispossession, capturing the generational and collective trauma experienced by all Palestinians in a way I’ve not seen done before. My heart is aching, weeping, wailing. This book will stay with you forever.
