SADNESS IS A WHITE BIRD
After moving back to Israel as a teenager, Jonathan is eager to join the army and defend the Jewish state his grandfather helped establish. But when he meets Nimreen and Laith, the Palestinian twin daughter and son of his mother's friend, his world-view is altered.
Powerful, important, and timely, SADNESS IS A WHITE BIRD explores one man's attempts to find a place for himself, discovering in the process a beautiful, against-the-odds love that flickers like a candle in the darkness of a never-ending conflict. In this lyrical and searing debut novel written by a rising literary star, a young man is preparing to serve in the Israeli army while also trying to reconcile his close relationship to two Palestinian siblings with his deeply ingrained loyalties to family and country.
