520 |a Twin sisters Randa and Lamis live under the brutal occupation of the Gaza Strip. As neighbors, friends, and strangers are killed, one after another, their identities are blurred by death that strikes so randomly and without warning. Yet just as this terrible cycle continues, so too does the cycle of life. Randa, Lamis, and their friend Amna seek to affirm life, not just survive, by working, playing, loving, matchmaking, planning weddings, and looking to the future. People get married, children are born, and hope springs anew.Eloquent and lyrical, this is a novel of courage and determination, of living life against the odds.
