Our Father Abraham

Our Father Abraham

Author : Tannous Moawad

The year in 1982. Captain Joseph Costa, a rising star in the Lebanese Army Intelligence, meets the beautiful Barbara Bishoff, a Mossad officer, on a schedules flight from Paris to Washington. Both are on a mission for their respective governments, but neither knows the other's identity, so they enjoy a few carefree days away from the problems of their countries. But when what was a fling turns to full-blown love, hard decisions have to be taken. Decisions that will change their lives forever. Set Against the back drop of the Lebanese war, the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, the massacres of Sabra and Shatilla and the deployment of the Multi National Force, Our Father Abraham is a love story that goes from the battlegrounds of Beirut to the streets of Paris, the corridors of power in New York and the beaches of the South of France. Joseph and Barbara face the ultimate test of their love as they are forced to question and reevaluate their professional, national and religious principals. Their soul searching leads them to discover who they really are, and in doing so, they go deep into the origins of national identity, making Our Father Abraham a story for our times, one that shows how love and respect can open up paths of understanding and tolerance in the Middle East and how Muslims, Christians and Jews have more in common than they realize. Tannous Moawad is the author of 18 Days of the Age of Lebanon (Arabic),2002, Gods and Editors,(French),2005, both published by Dar An-Nahar.
