Intertwined portraits ofÂ courage and hope in Afghanistan and Pakistan Â Najmah, a young Afghan girl whose name means â€œstar,â€ suddenly finds herself alone when her father and older brother are conscripted by the Taliban and her mother and newborn brother are killed in an air raid. An American woman, Elaine, whose Islamic name is Nusrat, is also on her own. She waits out the war in Peshawar, Pakistan, teaching refugee children under the persimmon tree in her garden while her Afghan doctor husband runs a clinic in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan. Najmahâ€™s father had always assured her that the stars would take care of her, just as Nusratâ€™s husband had promised that they would tell Nusrat where he was and that he was safe. As the two look to the skies for answers, their fates entwine. Najmah, seeking refuge and hoping to find her father and brother, begins the perilous journey through the mountains to cross the border into Pakistan. And Nusratâ€™s persimmon-tree school awaits Najmahâ€™s arrival. Together, they both seek their way home. Known for her award-winning fiction set in South Asia, Suzanne Fisher Staples revisits that part of the world in this beautifully written, heartrending novel. Â Under the Persimmon Tree is a 2006 Bank Street – Best Children’s Book of the Year.
