REVIEWS

What a gorgeous book this is – transporting in content and presentation both. I felt lost in the joys of shared legacies, adrift in savory fragrances, all sorrows of politics and injustices washed away.

From the brilliant author of Bitter Almonds comes another beautifully told story of a Palestinian family still trying to gather the pieces of itself, generations after we were all thrown to the wind. Lost in Thyme is a page turner, and I was hooked from the first chapter.
