About the book:
Finding Peace in the Holy Land is a timely memoir told with brisk honesty and sharp humour. Sweeping from the suburbs of North London to the olive groves of Palestine, it explores a life of excess-to-spiritualiy impacted by the struggle of a distant people.

Paddling the celebrity shallows of the 1990’s as ‘Tony Blair’s sister-in-law’, Lauren Booth explored everything city life had on offer. Yet, as a cautious Christian, she was drawn to the Holy Land too.

Given the chance to visit Palestine, instead of finding the faith of her Catholic heritage, she became embroiled in the people’s struggle, accidentally breaking a deadly siege by land and sea, playing handball with Hamas and witnessing daily acts of patience and courage which would change her forever.

Finding Peace in the Holy Land is a witty personal odyssey calling the reader to consider the universal question; ‘what’s this life thing all about?’

About the author:
Lauren Booth is a journalist and broadcaster who has presented series for amongst others: BBC Radio London, British Muslim TV, Press TV and the Islam Channel. She also has an international platform as a public speaker. Her talks and lectures focus on media bias, the illegal occupation of Palestine and her own conversion to Islam.
