Description Omar is an orphaned Palestinian born into chaos, displaced by violence, and driven by forces beyond his control to find his place in the world. He only has one thing to hold on to: a love that propels him forward and gives him hope. Nadia is carefree and tries to be oblivious to the tough realities of her world in Damascus. But she is confronted with a cruel load thrust upon her by selfish and cowardly brother. Will she break out of her traditional social mould to create her own destiny?
Heartbreaking and moving, Bitter Almonds is about displacement and exile, family duty and honor, and the universal feelings of love and loss. This is a book to break your heart, but it is also a book of hope and admiration at the resilience of the human spirit.
