“As a book, The Almond Tree has been praised enough. All over the web and the literary circles, it has been hailed as the most engrossing book of the year.

This is a tale of misunderstood people, those people who we frequently see in the news but really know very little about. How many of us have taken sides in the Israel Palestine issue without actually knowing what it was about?”
