Summary
On the eve of her daughter Alia's wedding, Salma reads the girl's future in a cup of coffee dregs. She sees an unsettled life for Alia and her children; she also sees travel, and luck. While she chooses to keep her predictions to herself that day, they will all soon come to pass when the family is uprooted in the wake of the Six-Day War of 1967. Salma is forced to leave her home in Nablus; Alia's brother is pulled into a politically militarized world. Alia and her gentle-spirited husband move to Kuwait City and reluctantly build a life with their three children -- until Saddam Hussein invades in 1990
