Facebook Book Club: When the Apricots Bloom


December, 2021.

Join us in the Eisenhower Library Book Club Group on Facebook, a place to read and discuss books with our community. We’ll choose a new book every month and share discussion questions, author interviews, recommended read-a-likes, and anything else we can think of to enhance your reading experience. Share your thoughts as you read the book.

This month’s book is When the Apricots Bloom by Gina Wilkinson.

At night, in Huda’s fragrant garden, a breeze sweeps in from the desert encircling Baghdad, rustling the leaves of her apricot trees and carrying warning of visitors at her gate. Huda, a secretary at the Australian embassy, lives in fear of the mukhabarat-the secret police who watch and listen for any scrap of information that can be used against America and its allies. They have ordered her to befriend Ally Wilson, the deputy ambassador’s wife. Huda has no wish to be an informant, but fears for her teenaged son, who may be forced to join a deadly militia. Nor does she know that Ally has dangerous secrets of her own.
