    PDFEPUB sustanonpro #9734; The Fig Orchard PDF #180; The Fig ePUB #205; orchard pdf, The Fig kindle, The Fig Orchard MOBIThis book frustrated me to no end I kept saying Where is this lady's editor?? I kid you not one out of every ten sentences is a fragment I guess that's her writing style but it's maddening And the rabbit trails Just when the plot was getting exciting she'd go into the whole life story of a minor character The length could have been cut by half with no ill effects To be honest the only reason I read beyond the first hundred pages is because the story is so intriguing But that even failed me as it got very predictable with all the loose ends tied up in one neat unbelievable bow Very Deus ex machina I'm sure we'll still have lots of fun discussing it at book club though

    PDFEPUB sustanonpro #9734; The Fig Orchard PDF #180; The Fig ePUB #205; orchard pdf, The Fig kindle, The Fig Orchard MOBIAn excellent first novel by author Layla Fiske The book has an interesting and somewhat overlooked historical setting the Arab Christian community of Palestine in the first part of the 20th century before World War II The Middle East front of World War I which pitted the Ottoman Turkish empire rulers of Palestine against Great Britain rulers of Egypt is not well known other than through the story of Lawrence of Arabia but plays an important part in this story However the book is primarily focused on the life of a Palestinian woman her family and those in the Palestinian Christian community with whom she interacts Her life spans a period during which traditional Palestinian Christian society changes as a result of the forces of modernity particularly in terms of the place of women within that societyThe story itself is filled with interesting plot turns and si

    PDFEPUB sustanonpro #9734; The Fig Orchard PDF #180; The Fig ePUB #205; orchard pdf, The Fig kindle, The Fig Orchard MOBIThis book had me right from the beginning It's one of those stories that had me thinking of it several times through the day even wanting to drop everything to read further I won't soon forget this epic story As the publisher uses in it's PR I agree whole heartedly that this novel is a rich compelling epic of love heroism family and empowerment I was fully invested in the characters especially Nishrina the novel's heroine This is a beautiful coming of age story about a strong girl in a time and place in which women were objects to be owned and controlled It is about love and how love can heal youThere was only one minor incident in which a character was dying and what that person said did not ring true for me though it certainly added to the already multi layered plot For a first novel with such a rich and layered story that's rather minor in my view I loved this storyThis one ends up in my all time top favourites shelf Highly recommended
