The House of Rajani

A historical novel which takes place in 1895 Jaffa. It records the diaries of Salah Rajani, a 12-year old Moslem child cursed with prophetical powers, who foresees the rising of the Jewish state; and that of a 27 year old Jewish settler, new to the city. The two negotiate love, honour and betrayal in the changing world of nineteenth-century Palestine.
