    A story on Israel and Palestinian conflict - a story about human emotions and triumph of human spirit under adversity.

    Written about a Palestinian boy and his family alongwith other Arabs stuck in the occupied land by Israel. It talks about the ongoing war upon a religious faith, suppression of freedom, loss of innocence and the innocent victims buried under this hatred. In this sheer darkness of human existence, there's one man (Baba) who suffers through torture, inhuman conditions and imprisonment for no fault of his and yet he's the guiding light of his eldest son Hamid. Hamid has no money, no comforts, li...

    The Almond Tree

    The Almond Tree is Michelle Cohen Corasanti's debut novel and tells the story of Ichmad Hamid, a young Palestinian man. In it, Corasanti takes a sensitive look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through Ichmad's life journey.

    This is an ambitious first novel - not only because Corasanti adopts the viewpoint of a male protagonist, but also because she is Jewish American herself.

    Corasanti obviously feels deep compassion for her main characters. This sympathy helps her create a story that ...

    A fascinating read

    On the name & cover:
    The name itself sends a tickling sensation down the spine. After completing the whole book I can very easily say this is the best possible name for this piece of art. The role the tree has conveyed in this book makes the name perfect.
    The font in which the title has been printed and the chocolaty shade in the cover makes this book an instant hit among the readers. The cover gives the book an intense feeling which is very much needed for the book. Overall the name and the ...
