Mona Hajjar Halaby gives a poignant personal account of a daughter discovering her Palestinian roots and recovering her mother's beloved past. Perfect for fans of The Bookseller of Kabul and The Beekeeper of Aleppo.

Mona grew up with her mother Zakia's memories of Palestine, imagining the muezzin's call for prayer and the medley of church bells her mother so vividly described. Accepting a teaching position in Ramallah, Mona embarks on a pilgrimage to discover her mother's long-lost home in occupied Jerusalem. After fifty-nine years of exile, mother and daughter stand hand-in-hand together in Jerusalem - but can a lifetime of loss ever be healed?

Paperback, 288 pages.
