The Struggle Continues
An arduous journey of hope
by Christopher Thomson

Through a cast of international characters, this compelling story traces a Palestinian refugee family through a decade of violence and conflict in and around Lebanon in the 1970’s, against a backdrop of upheaval in the Middle East, contentious debate at the United Nations, and challenging peacekeeping operations. The Struggle Continues follows Ali and Salim, two young men determined to defend their families and people. While Ali’s family suffers greatly, and he is reluctantly drawn into the conflict, Salim becomes a diplomat seeking to draw international attention to the plight of the displaced and landless refugees. With a gripping plot and dynamic characters, The Struggle Continues transports readers into the heart of the Lebanese-Palestinian conflict of the period. It reminds people of the pain of personal loss and displacement, and the ultimate cost of warfare.

"A heartfelt portrait of an embattled people that illuminates all sides of a seemingly unsolvable conflict." ─Kirkus Reviews

Christopher Thomson lived in Beirut as a Canadian diplomat in the early 1970s at the start of his thirty-two-year career. He subsequently served as Counsellor for Political Affairs on the Canadian delegation to the UN in New York and, later, on the delegation to the UN in Geneva. His diplomatic career also included serving in Hong Kong, as Deputy Permanent Representative to the OECD in Paris, as Consul General in the US, and as Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates as well as senior positions in Ottawa in Global Affairs Canada and the Privy Council Office. He is retired and lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife, Katrina, a former Canadian diplomat and educator. Of his five children, two were born in the Middle East.
