Here is what the postwoman delivered to me this week:
Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa arrived from Bloomsbury through a Shelf Awareness offer. This novel, set initially in the refugee camp of Jenin, is the story of Amal and follows one family’s struggle and survival over sixty years of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Called “powerful” and “richly detailed,” Mornings in Jenin is a novel which gives voice to the people behind the headlines. Abulhawa was born to refugees of the Six-Day War and moved to the United States as a teenager. Mornings in Jenin is her first novel. To read more about Abulhawa and her work, visit the author’s website.
Taking Charge of Your Own Health by Lisa Hall with Ronald M. Wyatt, MD, MHA arrived as a review copy from Scott Lorenz, President of Westwind Communications. This comprehensive patient resource guide has been published by Harvest House Publishers. This book centers around containing medical costs by empowering people to take charge of their own medical care. Hall suffered for nearly a decade with an undiagnosed medical condition (receiving thirty-seven wrong diagnoses from as many medical practitioners) before finally getting an answer and appropriate treatment for her condition. In her book she focuses on strategies for patients to assume more responsibility for their health. To learn more about Hall and her work, visit the author’s website.
