Very personal and touching account of one Palestinian family from Gaza and the effects of occupation, including suggestions for reconciliation despite unthinkable suffering, written from the point of view of a Palestinan physician

This is one of the most uplifting and inspiring books you will read. At a time when cycles of violence and revenge are spreading in the world, this man and this book will give you hope. Through the example of his life, Dr. Abuelaish shows that the faithful of all religions are working toward the same goal. Anger need not lead to hatred, but, instead can motivate us to work for peace and justice.

Tragic In this heartbreaking (yet strangely uplifting) memoir, Abuelaish relates his life—growing up in poverty in a Palestinian refugee camp, slaving so that he could raise enough money to go to medical school, and his rising career coincident with his growing family. Despite losing 3 daughters and a niece to an Israeli military action, Abuelaish preaches that love, not hate, is required to bring peace. Abuelaish’s story is engrossing and tragic, yet I couldn’t help but think about all of the suffering Palestinians who don’t have a voice. If life is so hard for someone who has powerful connections, what must it be like for those who have no one to help them? This is a must-read for people who think Palestinians are all about terrorism and throwing rocks—people who likely wouldn’t touch the book with a 10-foot pole. It’s also a fantastic read for someone who is sympathetic to both sides of the conflict, but who wants to hear a personal story. I DO wish I could read the story of someone who isn’t highly connected, but this is a fantastic start. And Abuelaish’s enduring message of love make a monumental memoir.

In this world of hatred and war this book takes you inside and out to forgiveness. It is a beautifully written story of the strength of family, commitment and what you will sacrifice for love and family. Don't miss this story. For us all to survive we must find a way to forgive.
