Gifted with a mind that continues to impress the elders in his village, Ichmad Hamid struggles with the knowledge that he can do nothing to save his Palestinian friends and family. Living on Israeli-occupied land, the entire village operates in fear of losing homes, jobs, and belongings. But more importantly, they fear losing each other.On Ichmad’s twelfth birthday, that fear becomes a reality. With his father imprisoned, his family’s home and possessions confiscated, and his siblings quickly succumbing to the dangers of war, Ichmad begins the endless struggle to use his intellect to save his poor and dying family and reclaim a love for others that was lost when the bombs first hit.The Almond Treecapitalizes on the reader's desire to be picked up and dropped off in another part of the world. It tackles issues that many Americans only hear about on World News or read about at The Huffington Post, such as the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the scholasticide that is being allegedly imposed upon the Palestinians in Gaza and the current Gaza blockade.But even more, it offers hope. Hope and the thought that these two groups who have fought for thousands of years can forgive and live together in peace.

A former lawyer trained in international human rights law, MICHELLE COHEN CORASANTIhas her BA from Hebrew University in Jerusalem and her MA from Harvard. Both are in Middle Eastern studies. Currently living in New York with her husband and their twins, Michelle actively promotes awareness of issues that affect the Middle East. Michellersquo;s knowledge of the Israelindash;Palestinian struggle comes from the seven years she lived in Israel. First-hand, she witnessed the struggles of the Palestinians and heard their stories. Stories of one-room mud houses without electricity. Fathers imprisoned for decades at a time. Illiterate mothers who could not provide for their children. Small boys that gave up school work for manual labor. Although Jewish, her love and compassion for the Palestinian people grew. Eventually, she married her first husband ndash; an Arabndash;Israeli who she met at Harvard University where he was doing his post doctorate with a Nobel prize winner in Chemical Physics. Their traditional wedding took place in his Middle Eastern village. It was his story ndash; one of an incredible intelligence that took him out of the Middle East and dropped him beside a Nobel prizewinner ndash; that sparked inspiration for The Almond Tree.
