"Barbara Goldscheider’s fine first novel gets you inside the minds of both Jewish and Palestinian individuals whose lives are inescapably caught up in the Middle East conflict. This is a story of tender and passionate love, of home, and of deep tragedy. At the same time, the author, through her characters, views the current conflict from both sides and presents thoughtful dialogues on its origin, why it has continued for so long, and what must be done if it is to be resolved."
—G. William Farthing, author of The Psychology of Consciousness
