It is set in the occupied West Bank during the 70s, and the sequel to her debut Wild Thorns (al-Subbar). It deals with 3 women, everyone of them outsiders in palestinian society: Sadiya, who is a widow, caring for her children, supporting herself while fighting off the bad talk by her neighbours. Khadra, who is a prostitute and who doesnt care about what men think of her after her former husband ran away with the children to Jordan, and then there is Rafeef, who is an independent thinking journalist. Each one of them fights for their own right in society. I must say that it is one of the best books Ive ever read.
