Katrina in Five Worlds is the inspiring true story of Katrina Sa’ade, a Palestinian Christian woman of the early 20th century. Written and researched by Katrina’s granddaughter, this dramatic emigrant woman’s tale explores the historical upheaval that thrust young Katrina from a comfortable life in Ottoman-ruled Bethlehem into the turmoil of pre-revolutionary Russia, an arranged marriage during the Mexican Revolution, a traumatic return to Palestine in the 1930’s, and fulfilling years as a mother and businesswoman in California. In these far-flung places, she overcame loss, crossed cultural divides, and made courageous choices that changed her life and that of her family forever.Katrina’s story will interest students of Middle Eastern and Latin American studies, migration, gender studies, history, anthropology and sociology, as well as the descendents of Palestinian and Arab immigrants whose own family stories deserve to be collected before they disappear.“An outstanding journey into a forgotten history of migrant experience, based on intimate family correspondence.”Dr. Salim Tamari, Professor of Sociology, Birzeit University, PalestineKatrina en Cinco Mundos es la verdadera e inspiradora historia de Katrina Sa’ade, una mujer palestina cristiana nacida a principios del siglo 20. Fruto de las investigaciones de la nieta de Katrina, estos dramaticos pasajes de la vida de esta mujer inmigrante exploran la agitacion historica que empujo a una joven Katrina de su comoda vida en Belen regida por los Otomanos a la agitada Rusia pre-revolucionaria, un matrimonio arreglado durante la Revolucion Mexicana, un traumatico regreso a Palestina en los anos 30, y sus anos de plenitud como madre y mujer de negocios en California. En estos 5 lugares lejanos, ella supero perdidas, cruzo divisiones culturales, y tomo valientes decisiones que cambiaron su vida y la de su familia para siempre.La historia de Katrina es de interes para estudiosos sobre el Medio Oriente y Latinoamerica, sobre migracion, estudios de genero, historia, antropologia y sociologia, asi como para los descendientes de palestinos e inmigrantes arabes cuyas propias historias familiares merecen ser recopiladas antes de que desaparezcan.“Un emocionante recorrido por la experiencia olvidada de una inmigrante,basada en correspondencia intima familiar” Dr. Salim Tamari, Profesor de Sociologia, Birzeit University, Palestina
