Hasan comes to live in the Holy Land in 1914 as the orphaned son of martyred Bahá'ís
Growing up can be a painful process. Life seems full of unanswered questions and unexplained mysteries: What is love? What is it like to be married? What happens when we die? Is there really a God? There are physical changes and new feelings to cope with. Is there anyone who really understands what a thirteen-year-old is going through?
This is the story of Hasan, who comes to live in the Holy Land in 1914 as the orphaned son of martyred Bahá'ís. He is embittered, lonely and angry. He understands neither the changes taking place in his life and in his body nor the reason for his parents' murder. Everything is bottled up inside him.
Slowly, cautiously, Hasan begins to trust his new-found friends. Questions he hardly dared to ask are taken seriously and carefully answered. Gradually, through conversations with the Bahá'ís he has come to live among, Hasan grows to understand both himself and the Bahá'í Faith, and he discovers the warmth, love and friendship that life has to offer.
Conversations is a sequel to Ali's Dream.
