This book is a compilation of letters which the author wrote during a two year period from Bethlehem and Jerusalem. She describes her encounters with ordinary and extraordinary Israelis and Palestinians who are caught up in the conflict. What does it feel like to be the parent of a suicide bomber? To be a Palestinian suspected of collaboration? To have your home demolished for no sensible reason? To be the mother of small children trapped indoors for days on end in a curfew? Katharine finds out and then tells us in these letters.
