No Place StrangeBook - 2009
Lydia is a young Jewish Canadian woman trying to make sense of her father's involvement with Palestinian terrorist Rafa Ahmed. Lydia meets and falls in love with Farid, a young Lebanese man whose cousin, Mouna, is a political radical dangerously obsessed with Rafa. Finally, Mariam, Rafa's former professor and Mouna's aunt, tries to maintain a normal life in Beirut's devastating civil war. These four lives intersect in ways that promise to change them forever. Diana Fitzgerald Bryden has fashioned a stunning first novel of passion and obsession, love and hate, and families caught in the crossfire.
