Under the Lemon Tree is written on the same ideas of family. A book of poetry that tells the story of the Lemon Tree family. This book shows different personalities that changed themselves from good to bad, from heroes to villains. This is a story that almost everyone in the world can relate to because it happens to so many families. I have seen families torn apart by lies, cheating, stealing, and self-hate.
This story is about seven beautiful sisters and a brother. The sisters ruin their family name and take everyone to the most profound decline. Their nephew, the story's protagonist, believed them to be divine. From childhood, he walked with them, followed them, and did whatever they did. They were like a goddess to him who could never make mistakes. He used to feel proud of them always.
The family name, Lemon Tree, was turned from great respect to being the joke of the town. All the sisters fighting over an inheritance that doesn't belong to them. They lied to each other and created misconceptions and misunderstandings.
They gay-shamed their brother and nephew for being gay, for being men of culture and education, for being honest with themselves and no longer their puppets. The protagonist realizes how the sisters have abused them emotionally, verbally, and sometimes mentally.
Under the lemon tree is a defining story from a colorful past relished under great, honorable, honest, and upright grandparents to a bitter family dispute that has ruined everything and everyone's life.
