A Novel A BookSense Notable Title for February 2007Once in a Promised Land is the story of a couple, Jassim and Salwa, who left the deserts of their native Jordan for those of Arizona, each chasing their own dreams of opportunity and freedom. Although the two live far from Ground Zero, they cannot escape the nationwide fallout from 9/11. Jassim, a hydrologist, believes passionately in his mission to keep the water tables from dropping and make water accessible to all people, but his work is threatened by an FBI witch hunt for domestic terrorists. Salwa, a Palestinian now twice displaced, grappling to put down roots in an inhospitable climate, becomes pregnant against her husband`s wishes and then loses the baby. When Jassim kills a teenage boy in a terrible accident and Salwa becomes hopelessly entangled with a shady young American, their tenuous lives in exile and their fragile marriage begin to unravel . This intimate account of two parallel lives is an achingly honest look at what it means to straddle cultures, to be viewed with suspicion, and to struggle to find save haven.From the Hardcover edition.

Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers"Terror cannot be smoothed away by rational thinking."Tucson, Arizona, may be light-years away from Jassim and Salwa's native Jordan, but it isn't far enough to provide the freedom and acceptance for which they'd hoped. Jassim, a hydrologist, works tirelessly to preserve the water table; Salwa, his wife, spends her days in a bank and moonlights selling real estate, trying to stave off her desire for a child. In this new century, Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers"Terror cannot be smoothed away by rational thinking."Tucson, Arizona, may be light-years away from Jassim and Salwa's native Jordan, but it isn't far enough to provide the freedom and acceptance for which they'd hoped. Jassim, a hydrologist, works tirelessly to preserve the water table; Salwa, his wife, spends her days in a bank and moonlights selling real estate, trying to stave off her desire for a child. In this new century, however, a national cloud of suspicion and doubt threatens the promise of their life together. First, Jassim is involved in a car accident. Then Salwa seeks solace from an unstable co-worker, and Jassim - solid citizen and respected professional - is bullied by the FBI in their hunt for domestic terrorists. Halaby's second novel displays an extraordinary ability to get deep within her characters, to see the world as they do. Once in a Promised Land is a novel of terrible truths. Wanting what many of us want - family, a home, and justice - Jassim and Salwa mustwatch as their brave hopes suffer a fateful conflict with the way we live now.
