Bitter Almonds Paperback / softback
by Lilas Taha
Omar is an orphaned Palestinian born into chaos, displaced by violence, and driven by forces beyond his control to find his place in the world.
He only has one thing to hold on to: a love that propels him forward and gives him hope.
Nadia is maturing into womanhood in a refugee community in Damascus.
She tries hard to cope with the tough realities of her world, but is confronted with a cruel load thrust upon her by a selfish brother.
Can she break out of her traditional social mold to create her own destiny?
Heart-breaking and moving, Bitter Almonds is about displacement and exile, family duty and honour, and the universal feelings of love and loss.
