Staircase of a thousand steps : a novel by Masha Hamilton ( Book )

Staircase of a Thousand Steps lifts the veil from a mystical land, where jasmine and dung mix and the inconceivable is embraced as commonplace. In a Middle Eastern village that traces its history back to Abraham, the men gather nightly beneath a tree named Moses' Finger, and the women meet at a place where "the earth breathes." But the midwife Faridah possesses transcendent wisdom and a dangerous scorn for tradition. And the shepherd Harif, seer and village outsider, weaves stories in an effort to protect his fragile status. While Harif's granddaughter, Jammana, struggles between the allure of the ancient world and the tensions of a modern age. Through an ancestral gift, Jammana experiences the memories of those closest to her-Faridah, Harif, and her mother, Rafa. But as she unwittingly uncovers the village's secrets, old grudges move like a slow burn across the fields and ignite. Set in Transjordan just before the 1967 war with Israel, Staircase of a Thousand Steps braids a chorus of voices into a poetic, haunting tale of loyalty, longing, and accidental betrayal

Once a fortnight, the nomadic settlement of Madidima, deep in the dusty Kenyan desert, awaits the Camel Bookmobile, a scheme set up to bring books to scattered tribes so tiny and far-flung they have become almost invisible. Into their world comes an unexpected wealth of literature, from the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Homer to vegetarian cookbooks. Kanika, a young girl, devours every book she can lay her hands on. Her best friend is Scar Boy, a child who was mauled at the age of three by a hyena and is considered an outcast by the rest of the tribe. The only condition of the Camel Bookmobile is that every book must be returned each week or else the visits will cease. Then one day a book is stolen
