Description - Smiles of Saints by Ibrahim Farghali

Told through the voices of a group of close friends and spanning a generation, "The Smiles of the Saints" is an epic story condensed into an intricate novel. Twenty-year-old Haneen has just returned to Egypt after an absence of fifteen years spent mostly in a Parisian boarding school. She has been summoned back by her father's twin sister, who gives her an envelope containing his diaries, the last section of which is missing. Haneen begins to unravel the riddle of a family she has barely known.
