Review: Salt Houses

Salt Houses by Hala Alyan is an evocative family story set in the Middle East. The family is Palestinian and various wars and marriages move the daughters of the family throughout the region offering glimpses of what it is to be part of that fabric of the world.

The story for me was just okay and at times it dragged. I had a difficult time getting into the story and to care about the main characters. However, I appreciated the look into a world I’ve never experienced and for that reason it was a worthwhile read.
