5 Reasons to read The Shepherd’s Granddaughter

Cover art
1.    Palestine:  where the book is set.  A land of olive groves, mountains, and centuries of dispute.

2.   Amani:  the lead lady. She insists on being a shepherd like her grandfather instead of going to school like all the other girls.

3.   Wolves:  they prey on Amani’s sheep.  She must protect them and herself!

4.   Tension:  a trip to town to deliver the olive harvest on time means hoping the truck does not break down on the rough desert roads and crossing Israeli checkpoints.

5.   Seedo:  Amani’s grandfather.  His wise words guide her and will stay with you, too.

Check it out at the library!
