The Blue Between Sky and Water

It is 1947, and Beit Daras, a rural Palestinian village, is home to the Baraka family - oldest daughter Nazmiyeh, brother Mamdouh, beautiful young Mariam and their widowed mother. But when Israeli forces descend on the village, the family must flee, taking the long road to Gaza, on a walk that will test them to their limits, with consequences that will echo throughout generations. This is a story of strong women and lost men - of relocation and separation - but also renewal, endurance, and hope. Susan Abulhawa brings a raw humanity and delicate authority to the story of Palestine in this devastating tale of a family's survival.
