Lebanon in the 1980s and the country is racked by war. Lamia and her family are caught in the tensions as her brother is betrayed to the enemy by someone who was supposed to have been his friend. Lamia struggles with the hatred that threatens to destroy her, until she realises that forgiveness and love are the most important things. Nothing else matters. A powerful and moving story of civil war in Lebanon, where a family is caught up in the conflict with tragic consequences. The stories of Patricia St John are timeless classics and have been entertaining and challenging children and young people for generations. This new edition of Nothing Else Matters is as fresh as when it was first published in 1983.
