This award winning debut novel begins in 1963 as Salma reads her daughter’s future in a cup of coffee grounds on the eve of her wedding. She foresees an unsettled future for her which soon comes to pass when the family is uprooted in the Six Day War of 1967. A deeply absorbing multi generational novel of a middle class Palestinian family as they endure war, loss, displacement, and ultimately hope.
