by Raphael N Melmed

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
True story of a Jewish woman trapped in the Palestinian refugee camp of Zarqa, Jordan, for 24 years, surviving the bloody and cruel Balck September War between the Palestinians and King Husein's Legion.
It can now be told … In May 1948 a mortar shell hit a home in the Old City of Jerusalem. “A Small Blue Sky” is the true story of Miriam, a Jewish woman married to a Christian Arab, whose six children were killed that day. This is a story of survival. The story of Miriam’s years in a Palestinian refugee camp, where they had fled to escape the war, where she bore three more children, and where she saw her husband die. This is a story of wit and courage. Of how Miriam raised her children alone, immersed in a dangerous sea of hostility, she fought for their dignity and honor, with uncanny judgment. This is a story of a woman’s compassion and unrelenting determination. Of how they survived the bloody and ruthless Black September war between the Palestinians and the Jordanians, not knowing if or when their extended ordeal would end. This is a true story.
