Against the Loveless World, by Susan Abulhawa

Cover of Against the Loveless World, by Susan Abulhawa.

Winner of the Palestine Book Award.

A romance fantasised around Palestinian experiences with the creation of Israel. Broadly based on facts from a Palestinian’s point of view. Commences in 1948 with the creation of Israel and how the Palestinians tried to fight back from the encroachment of the Israeli settlements.
It is hard not to feel sympathy for the Palestine people when reading this book.

Well written.
