2016 Reading challenge – book two

February has rolled around and its blowing a gale out there this morning. My second book as part of the Modern Mrs Darcy reading challenge is one chosen for me by my husband. He has selected Dr. Swee Chai Ang’s From Beirut to Jerusalem, the account of an orthopaedic surgeon who volunteered to help civilians in Beirut in the early 1980’s. From Beirut to Jerusalem He chose this because “it was the first book I read about Lebanon after serving there and it started me reading more and more about the Middle East.” I should explain that my husband did two tours of duty with UNIFIL while a member of the Irish Defence Forces and his time there made a lasting impression on him.

Its non fiction, history, politics, a combination which I probably read more frequently than anything else, but I have never read anything about Lebanon or the wider Middle East conflict. So let’s see what I think of this one. Happy reading!
