A collaboration between an Israeli psychologist and a Palestinian school teacher.This highly original book recounts the surprisingly candid stories of three Palestinian mothers and their daughters. Beautifully told and sensitively edited, these linked narratives bear witness to their experiences of Israeli occupation, their memories of the wars of 1948 and 1967, and the profound changes that have occurred in their political and personal lives. "The complexity of the women’s lives and stories and the ways in which they portray themselves in the book make this work of value to anthropologists, as well as to scholars in women’s studies, oral history, Middle East studies, and sociology."-Journal of Palestine Studies
