what a sad story. very well written. we are given a look at a Muslims family's turmoil after an earthquake. Americans are there to help but memories of his fathers death reminds him Americans made the gun that killed him. A Romeo and Juliet romance with the daughter and American boy. Heartwrenching events affect the daughter and her decisions which ultimately become tragic. a MUST read.
