It's April 1948, and war hangs over Jaffa.
One minute seven-year-old Salim is dreaming of taking his first harvest from the family's orange tree; the next he is swept away into a life of exile and rage. Seeking a new beginning in swinging-'60s London, Salim falls in love with Jude. The only problem? Jude is Jewish.
A captivating story about love and loss, Ishmael's Oranges follows the story of two families spanning the crossroad events of modern times, and the legacy of hatred their children inherit.

"Richly, hauntingly written... immeasurably beautiful." - Independent
"An accomplished piece of storytelling... If you are looking for a gripping, challenging summer read, then Ishmael's Oranges should be on your list." - Jewish Chrolicle
