The Almond Tree

The Almond Tree - Michelle Cohen Corasanti A Goodreads Giveaway Book

This was a heartbreaking book to read as it follows the life if Ichmad and his life of poverty, bad circumstances and racial prejudices that surrounds him. In spite of all this, Ichmad uses what he does have, a fierce determination and a genius mind to make something of himself.
It is ultimately a story about love, family, humanity and relationships and it was beautifully told.

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good, fairly quick read, especially if one would like a better understanding of the Palestinian/ Israeli conflict through a fiction format.
