Book #2 - The Kalandia Series

A Palestinian refugee camp, 2001

Life in a Palestinian refugee camp is filled with poverty, and hopeless frustration at the best of times—and 2001 is far from the best of times. Muhammad, already scarred by violence and tragedy, is plunged into depression when the frequent curfews make it impossible for him to find work. He can no longer face the thought of crossing the military checkpoint, but all available jobs are on the other side. His inability to provide for his family drives him to despair. He decides to spend the only coin remaining to him—his life.

Dixiane Hallaj (Author)

Dixiane Hallaj lives in the small town of Purcellville, Virginia, with her husband of over fifty years and their cat named Dog. After a long career as an educator and a business woman, she earned her Ph.D. the year she qualified for Medicare. She has been writing award-winning fiction ever since.

Dixiane spent eleven years living and working in the Middle East as part of her husband's extended family. Her novels about Palestinian refugees are based on her experiences during that time and later, when interviewing women in the camps for her doctoral research.

It's Just Lola is based loosely on the life of her grandmother. She enjoyed writing about the family so much that she carried the characters on to another generation with Aunt Nellie B, a lighthearted fiction.
