Dervla Murphy describes with passionate honesty the experience of living with and among Jewish Israelis and Palestinians in both Israel and Palestine.

In cramped Haifa high-rises, in homes in the settlements and in a refugee camp on the west bank, she talks with whomever she meets, trying to understand them and their attitudes with her customary curiosity, empathy and acute ear. Behind the book lies a desire to communicate the reality of life on the ground, and to puzzle out what might be done to make peace in the region a possibility.
