Item description for The Warm Wind Of Palestine by Scott S. Crye...

Jenna is a young, beautiful, strong-willed woman; she is also a highly respected doctor and conducts research in one of the most sophisticated and cutting-edge fields of medicine. However, she is also a Palestinian... in a post 9/11 America, a nation bristling with hostility towards a culture and area of the world about which they know very little. Fortunately for her, since her move to the town of Springfield, she has made many good friends, including the Larsens, who are so warm and welcoming that they slowly begin to fill that painful void in Jenna's life: the loss of her family to a "mistake" bombing by the Israeli Armed Forces. Their generosity and concern for her safety and well-being knows no bounds; Jenna develops a deep friendship withthem, which ultimately proves itself in the face of a tragic accident. This young woman's story is one of courage under fire-the fire of prejudice, hostility, bigotry and chauvinism. Thanks to her friends and colleagues, who see and love her for who she is-not what she wears or how she looks-there can be a reconciliation of cultural differences between East and West, a peaceful symbiosis that is rare amidst the ignorance and fear which abounds in the face of the unknown. Jenna undermines all the misconceptions of a culture construed to be so different from the American one. The story of her enduring friendship with the "all-American" Larsen family provides a heart-warming blueprint for a world without prejudice, a world which finally accepts that cultural differences are merely superficial and that, deep inside, we are all built of the same flesh and blood.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Warm Wind Of Palestine?

Wonderful characters  Aug 29, 2005
In a saturated market of fiction that encourages readers not to think about the world around them, The Warm Wind of Palestine is a refreshing change. Smart, touching, and skillfully written, I was surprised how much I cared about these characters when I finished the book -- and I was sorry to see it end. The novel is also relevant to the current events in Israel/Palestine, as well as larger issues of racism and immigrant Americans. Excellent read.
A Charming Story!  Jul 28, 2005
This is an easy, engaging read that is well worth your time.

In a time when the Middle East dominates the news, "Warm Wind..." introduces Jenna Habeeb, a character that is easy to enjoy. Her triumphs and struggles in a post 9/11 America create an engrossing tale that we can all take to heart.

The reader steps into her daily life and by the end of the story, you want nothing more than the opportunity to sit down with Jenna and her friends, sip a cup of tea, and discuss the world we live in.
a refreshing novel  Apr 1, 2005
I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this book. I'm very glad I did; this turned out to be one of my favorite books.
The main character, Jenna, is a young woman that we can all at least aspire to relate to. This book takes you through a summer of her life. Very thought-provoking, masterfully written and entertaining. I highly recommend it to anyone who lives and breathes! This is a book not only to entertain yourself with, but one to learn from. I'm looking forward to Scott's next book.
