 Cedar Mountain is a story of friendship and love; it is also a story of war, and of people who show exceptional strength and courage, but they do so in many different ways.  The war changes all of them, but they, too, knowingly and unknowingly change each other.  There is tragedy, betrayal and death, but there is also faith, redemption and hope.

About the author

 Nathir Sara was born in Iraq which, at that time was a stable and peaceful constitutional monarchy.  He completed his elementary and secondary education in Mosul and received a Bachelor’s degree in English and Education from the University of Baghdad. He then earned a Master’s and PhD degrees from the University of Illinois and worked till retirement in the field of education, as an administrator first and later as a professor. The greater part of his service was in Lebanon and Bahrain, but he also enjoyed short assignments at universities in Canada, U.S. and Germany.

Cedar Mountain is his first novel.  All his previous publications, books and research articles, were confined to his academic field.  Like most authors, Nathir feels proud of all his works, but he is partial toward his novel. Academic works confine the author within the strict rules of the method of science, leaving little room for creativity and allowing no scope for free examination of the existential experience of ordinary men and women.
