Salt Houses

$26.00

Salt Houses is a moving story about a Palestinian family caught between the Six-Day War of 1967 and Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. The day before her youngest daughter’s wedding, Salma discovers that her daughter’s life soon will be stained with the pain of war and uncertainty of what home will mean. Little did she know, this pain would reach her whole family. This is a multigenerational story that shifts you from different points of view of the family members and uproots the conflicting emotions of what it means to not go home again. Your heartstrings will be tugged between Salma’s worry for her children, to Alia’s struggle with raising a family in Kuwait City, to Mustafa’s unwanted, militarized involvement with political conflicts. The author takes you on a journey to various places like Palestine, Kuwait, Paris and more as the family members experience leaving their home in different ways. The author’s writing intertwines the stories of the family members in a style that grasps you in the heartbreak of what it means to lose your home and start anew.
