The Inheritance by Saḥar Khalīfah( Book )

"In this novel, Sahar Khalifeh examines the stark realities in the lives of Palestinian women. Through her protagonist, Zeynab, born to an American mother and a Palestinian father, Khalifeh illuminates the disorienting experience of living between two worlds, and the search for identity that mirrors the Palestinians' own quest for nationhoood. Set against the emotionally charged background of the early 1990s - when the Gulf War and the Oslo Accords fundamentally shifted the political landscape - The Inheritance takes as its subject the fate of young Palestinian women who supported their families for decades working elsewhere in the Middle East. Khalifeh traces the disruption caused by the Gulf War on the life of these women, as Zeynab returns to her homeland and tries to adapt to her new life on the West Bank after years spent in Kuwait."--Jacket
The image, the icon, and the covenant by Saḥar Khalīfah( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This award-winning novel is at once a recasting of the story of the Holy Family, an ode to Arab Jerusalem, and a call for liberation, not just of a nation but for the individual women and men who inhabit it." "After abandoning his beloved Mariam when she becomes pregnant, and escaping her brothers' bullets, Ibrahim abandons his own ideals and dreams of becoming a novelist, opting instead to follow his father's wishes and seek wealth and commercial success abroad. Thirty years later, lonely and disillusioned, Ibrahim returns to Ramallah to retrace the past he tried to leave behind. He sets out on a long and frustrating quest to track down Mariam, which takes him from the West Bank to Israel. Along the way he encounters his son, Michael, a young man with spiritual powers that enable him to see what is unknown and find what has gone missing. Moving and lyrical, Khalifeh's novel weaves religious and political symbolism into a story of love and loss. At its core is Ibrahim's - the Palestinian's - agonizing but unrelenting search for a home."--Jacket

The end of spring by Saḥar Khalīfah( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The End of Spring, Sahar Khalifeh chronicles the struggle of the Palestinian people with a humane depiction of Palestinian resistance fighters during the 2002 siege of Yasir Arafat's official headquarters. Khalifeh's tender and moving portrayal of her protagonists delves into the inner consciences of the men and women and children who were involved in the actual resistance - or were simply caught in the middle. These characters come alive through Khalifeh's use of Palestinian colloquial diction, as does the setting, through her measured attention to the details of the natural surroundings in which the characters live, fight, and die."--Jacket

Of noble origins : [a Palestinian novel caled Aṣl wa-faṣl] by Saḥar Khalīfah( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Qahtans are a Palestinian family that claims to have originated in the Arabian Peninsula, descended from the family of the Prophet Muhammad. This connection has given its members a certain ascendancy in their society, and has influenced their cultural and political choices. The true test occurs when the Qahtans, like other Palestinians, confront two enemies after the First World War: the British Mandate and the Zionist movement. Observing the gradual and increasing illegal Jewish immigration and land appropriation, the Palestinians come to realize they have been betrayed by a power that 'fulfilled their promises to the Jews and reneged on their promises to the Arabs.'"--Page 2 of cover

Chronique du figuier barbare by Saḥar Khalīfah( Book )

8 editions published between 1978 and 1997 in French and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce roman évoque la vie des Arabes dans une ville de Cisjordanie, occupée par les Israéliens depuis 1967. L'occupation ne fait pas que des victimes ... ce qui bouscule, secoue, perturbe les structures familiales et sociales de la communauté arabe. Un roman de colère parcouru par une violence omniprésente, mais pas un roman de haine, selon Naïm Kattan. Un roman pour comprendre l'impasse qui perdure au Moyen-Orient. Comment renouer le dialogue entre Israël et les Palestiniens? Est-il possible? souhaitable? Autant de questions que Sahar Khalifa se pose fiévreusement
