It's April 1948, and war hangs over Jaffa. One minute, seven-year-old Salim is dreaming of taking his first harvest from the family's orange tree; the next he is swept away into a life of exile and rage.
Seeking a new beginning in swinging '60s London, Salim falls in love with Jude. The only problem? Jude is Jewish.
Ishmael's Oranges follows the story of two families spanning the crossroad events of modern times and of the legacy of hatred their children inherit.

A really enjoyable book, sympathetically narrated. Interesting story, well written. I was interested to learn that the book is based on the author's personal circumstances, which lent authenticity to the events and emotions of the characters. Would read more of this author's work.
