What We Say: Where do you go when you can't go home? Salt Houses tells the story of Alia, who gets caught up in the resistance after the Six-Day War in 1967 and moves from Palestine to Kuwait. When Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait, she and her family lose their home yet again. Alia's children disperse to Beirut, Paris and Boston, and once more must navigate the highs and lows of starting over. 

What They Say: “A piercingly elegant novel… with the power to both break and mend your heart” – Ru Freeman, author of On Sal Mal Lane
