Corasanti's elaboration of history and fiction has created a touching narration which ensnares the reader from the first chapter.-- Middle East Monitor Having just finished reading The Almond Tree by new author Michelle Cohen Corasanti, I can honestly state that it is one of the most riveting books I have read during the past several months. Corasanti takes a realistic premise and builds an interesting and highly believable story that only gets better as the pages fly by. While The Almond Tree is a fictional tale, much of it is based on the truth of what is today's world, and as such there is also an important message located within. I highly recommend this book. --Charline Ratcliff at Rebecca's Reads With the onset of adulthood, one already must cope with so much.

A story that grabs you from the first page...This novel is not a political lecture, but a gripping and compassionate work of fiction. Huffington Post, Spanish TV and Radio Host Guillermo Fesser Corasanti's tale of resilience, hope and forgiveness is a must-read both for those who are stumbling through the Israeli-Palestinian minefield for the first time, and others who know its sorrows all too well. -- Washington Report on the Middle East ... a Kite-Runner-like epic of Palestinian life... makes you aware of what it's like to exist under Israeli rule...told in a manner that strongly resembles the voice and narrative used by Khaled Hosseini in his popular novel, The Kite Runner...A Palestinian Tale Told by a Jewish American...Although possibly difficult for Israelis and Jews everywhere to read, The Almond Tree should be required reading for all as when there is understanding of the other side, peace can be achieved. -- The Times of Israel
