Majd and Hilda are two people whose families stood on opposite sides of a war and massacre in Sabra and Shatila Camp, Lebanon, on September 16, 1982. The war destroyed Majd's family and left him scarred and mangled both mentally and physically. Majd and Hilda found each other and fell in love in New York years later, but when Hilda feels compelled to visit her family in Beirut, doubts and fears build walls between the lovers. Can they come to terms with the past in time to save their relationship?

in the tradition established by NECTAR IN A SIEVE, by MANCHILD IN THE PROMISED LAND, and by THE GOOD EARTH, this is one fantastic work of fiction, with the added bonus of being set in Manhattan. The author handles the stream of consciousness of two characters, of opposite genders. I needn't say that she survived a massacre at a refugee camp in Lebanon. What a way to recover!
