Whew!

He arrived in the cosmopolitan city of Montreal and discovered he was not the only one in search of a new life, and then that search became his life.
A Second Chance, a novel

A novel about devotion and betrayal, A Second Chance is also about forgiveness. Felicia Mihali is the author of The Darling of Kandahar, which was nominated for Canada Reads 2013.

Middle East History; Palestine.
The distinguished Arabic scholar, author, and translator Issa J. Boullata grew up in a Palestinian family in the Jerusalem of the 1930s and 1940s, when Palestine was under the British Mandate. This is a love letter to a Jerusalem that was changed immeasurably by Al-Nakba, the Palestinian Catastrophe of 1948 that dispossessed the Palestinians of their homeland and dislocated many as refugees when Israel was established.

Launch of Denis Sampson's A Migrant Heart, Sept. 18th, 2014
The latest review of Issa J. Boullata's The Bells of Memory: A Palestinian Boyhood in Jerusalem: "This is but a biography of one Palestinian Arab, but an important member of that community’s intelligentsia and literati. One can acquire an important glimpse into the character and quality of life in Palestine in the 1920s, up to the late 1940s; hence an important contribution." Middle East Media and Book Reviews Online, June 2014.
