Nakba: Catastrophe

Nakba: Catastrophe

When Palestinian Christian college student Sabria lives through the little known 1948 catastrophe of her people, she learns the cost of being Arab in the tumultuous time of Israel’s birth pangs. Despite enjoying both Jewish and Muslim friends, she falls in love with an American Christian supporter of Israel. Can their love for the suffering families of the land begin to bridge their own gap in the tragedy that became the foundation for the unresolved conflict of the next 69 years? Nakba fires the imagination of readers who care about justice and resolution in a romantic tale of adventure and hope.
