Il y a 50 ans, quasiment jour pour jour, c'était la guerre des 6 jours. Ce roman raconte la vie d'un famille palestinienne, une mélopée lancinante où se succèdent, malgré les cataclysmes qui s'abattent sur elle, mariages, naissances et morts. Cette histoire d'une grande force poétique, portée par une femme, des femmes, nous envoie un message d'espoir, humaniste.
