              Mohammad and Sarah are both offered jobs to work for the UN which prompts the family to return to Palestine. Mohammad believes it's just what the kids need. The older children are enrolled in the Ramallah Friends School and reluctantly become a part of a minority - the English-Sp...eaking. Though Palestinian, they speak an accented Arabic, have an American mother, and were raised in the States. They wish they hadn't been forced to move. There are subtle changes as Mohammad finds himself slipping into the accepted definition of an Arab male; Sarah wonders if Mohammad should have married a Palestinian, and their daughter Yasmeen, chafes under the imposed restrictions; she looks too American and is encouraged to cover her hair. There are adjustments, and compromises; there are secrets to be kept, and truths to embroider; through it all, there is love and family and the belief that everything is part of a Divine plan, and God makes no mistakes.

              It is the momentous year of 1917; the end of four hundred years of Ottoman Rule, the beginning of the British Mandate, and marks the birth of Salma's seventeenth child - Hasna. Not only is Hasna a girl born into a society that prizes boys, she is cursed with red hair, blue eyes a...nd freckles. They set her apart, leave her excluded, and are viewed with suspicion in a society where superstitions are a part of daily life. Her father refers to her only as the girl; even her mother acknowledges that Hasna is not very pretty. Still, Hasna is smart, capable and hardworking - tenacious of life, though married off at thirteen and a half to a boy she has never seen, she finds love and contentment in marriage, motherhood and family. Peasants never have it easy, and this tumultuous time in Palestine's history certainly makes life harder. Life is uncertain and tragic, but also filled with love, laughter and stories.

              The Well (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The Well is a love story between two teens who have never spoken. When Omar, the night of the wedding, lifts the veils that cover his bride's face with a sword, she is terrified; but he is gentle, kind, and considerate. Thus begins the love story of Omar and Nijmeh. It will carry... them through the terrifying days of the nakbe; the tragedy of a people displaced from all they know, adjustment to exile, to life in a refugee camp, and ultimately to military occupation. Sewn into the tapestry of their life will be the cat-and-mouse game of occupier and occupied and imprisonment; tragic death and heartache; there is compromise of principles; there is immovable faith, and there is also inexplicable joy. It is a story based on the reality of what it meant to be Palestinian during those turbulent years of 1947-1987.

              Mohammad the Ninth (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Mohammad is warned that he is going to the States to study; that he needs to concentrate on getting his degree and that he is not to get involved with an American-Christian co-ed. He smiles at the absurdity of the warning, as he has never dated, never kissed a girl, and never eve...n held a girl's hand. Then he meets Sarah. Not only is she an American co-ed, but she has a Methodist mother and a Jewish father named Goldman. There are hurdles to jump, obstacles to overcome, and convincing to do, as the magnetism between Mohammad and Sarah draws them unavoidably together. The chasms of culture, language, and religion seem insurmountable; Mohammad's mother has picked out the perfect Palestinian wife for him; Sarah's parents are not too keen on the possibility of a Moslem son-in-law named Mohammad and would rather she marry the boy next door. It is a story of prejudice and compromise, of ignorance and understanding, of severing ties and unity. Neither Mohammad nor Sarah questions their love for each other, but they do wonder if love is enough.

              Whether Christian, Muslim, or Jew, whatever label we wear, we all learn to submit ourselves to God and trust that what He has planned for our lives is right and good. Whether we refer to the Divine as God, or Allah, or Yahweh, He is the One and the Same. There will be times that ...we don't understand what He has written into our lives, but He is always there watching over us, caring for us, loving us. That is the reassuring call from the mosque, and that is the reassurance that whispers to my spirit in the poetic lines of Hafez and Rumi, in the translated words from the Quran, in the quotes from Sufism. Throughout the years I have underlined, highlighted, and marked passages and lines that have spoken to my spirit. I want to share these scraps of wisdom- these Reflections - that have polished the lamp of my heart.
