Summary
Hussein Saban, the only pig butcher in his small Jordanian town, lives with three generations of women. Regrets, dreams, and clandestine pasts in love, politics, and even espionage threaten the order in the household as generations clash. When a long-lost soldier from Hussein's military past arrives, the Sabas family must decide whether to protect or expose him, bringing long-simmering rivalries and injustices to the surface
Summary
Living in a small Jordanian town, Hussein Sabas must cope with his family’s illegal pork business that is upsetting their observant neighbors, a visit from his American niece and the news that his sister has joined the Syrian rebel cause
