A book of history, heritage, loyalty, religion, feminism, families, and the Armenian genocide

The Book of Queens is a family saga that spans four generations of women caught up in the tragic whirlwind of turf wars and suffering in the Middle East--from the Armenian genocide and the Israeli occupation of Palestine to modern-day civil wars and the struggles between Christians and Muslims in Lebanon and Syria.

Four queens of a deck of cards dealt a bad hand by fate--Qayah, Qana, Qadar and Qamar--form the branches of the same family tree rooted in the land of their origins despite the forceful winds that repeatedly try to carry them away. A line of red-haired women united by the ties of blood that runs through their veins--which violence has spread through the ages--each with a deep story and all with one thing in common: unwavering power and resilience in the face of adversities of being a woman in a war-torn region.

With the perfect mastery of finely chiseled writing, Joumana Haddad manages to construct a novel of extraordinary intensity, without ever sinking into pathos or grandiloquence. She also challenges the systematic abuse of political and religious power and authority that continues to cloud the lives of a culturally diverse and progressive youth until the present day.
