Book Review: Mornings in Jenin

Mornings in JeninMornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful novel I never felt it was fictional the story is a continuous misery and displacement of Palestinians. I was so touched by the story of Nakba and how life was before it. Maybe I won’t know how Palestinians felt when they lost their lands, houses, villages and were forced to stay in camps. But I could imagine how they felt and I imagined how happy the grandfather Yehya the Abulheja felt when he sneaked back to Ein Hod to pick the crops from his land which now was home to French artists.
Definitely the best novel about the Nakba.
