In the summer of 1967, Bashir - a young Palestinian man - knocks on the door of his childhood home in the town of Ramla in Israel, a home from which his family was driven some twenty years earlier. The door is opened by a young Jewish woman, Dalia, whose family settled in the house after fleeing persecution in Bulgaria at the end of the Second World War.
Thus begins an unlikely and difficult friendship, which bridges religious divides and lasts more than four decades. The Lemon Tree tells the story of this extraordinary meeting of minds and offers a much needed human perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
"At a time when peace seems remote and darkness deepens, this lucid, humane, hopeful book shines like a ray of light."
