This was a great historical fiction read about Israel from 1948 until modern day from a Palestinian viewpoint. Having visited Israel, I was fascinated by this story and have never read one like it. The Gaza situation of 2009 is heartbreaking and I was left wondering what can be done to end the bitter hate on both sides in that land. I applaud those who work to bring about a peaceful coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians, like this author and my Palestinian political science teacher who taught me in Jerusalem in 1989. I strongly recommend this book.
