Summary
The Sabas family lives in a small Jordanian town that for centuries has been descended upon by all manner of invaders, but their home is ruled by women -- Mother Fadhmna, Laila, Samira, and now, Muna, a niece visiting from America for the first time -- and it is brimming with regrets and desires. Clandestine pasts in love, politics, even espionage, threaten the delicate balance of order in the household, as generations clash. The family's ostensible patriarch -- Laila's husband Hussein -- enjoys no such secrets, not in his family or in town, where Hussein is known as the Levant's only pig butcher, dealing in chops, sausages, and hams, much to the chagrin of his observant neighbors. When a long-lost soldier from Hussein's military past arrives, the Sabas clan must decide whether to protect or expose him, bringing long-simmering rivalries and injustices to the surface
