"The Olive Grove" is a compassionate account of a Palestinian family's transition from wealth and comfort to statelessness and poverty. Deborah Rohan documents the Moghrabi family's fight for survival, set amidst the political turmoil of the first half of the twentieth century and their struggle against Turkish and British domination and the following Zionist occupation. This deeply moving family saga is a universal depiction of Palestinian life and culture, told without rancour, with a warm and engaging love story at its heart.
Deborah Rohan is a frequent speaker and writer on the Palestinian-Israeli situation, and teaches listening and dialogue skills to the victims of conflicts worldwide. She lives in Colorado, USA.
