Summary "In August 2000 Emma Williams arrived with her three small children in Jerusalem to join her husband and to work as a doctor. A month later the Palestinian Intifade erupted. Over the next three years, she witnessed an astonishing series of events in which hundreds of thousands of lives, including her own, were turned upside down." "Williams lived on the very border of East and West Jerusalem, working with Palestinians in Ramallah during the day and spending evenings with Israelis in Tel Aviv. Setting personal stories and conversations with friends and colleagues against the background of the long and fraught political situation, Williams' powerful memoir brings to life the realities of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. She gave birth to her fourth child in Bethlehem during the siege of the city, and she vividly recalls the horror when a suicide bomber blew himself up next to her children's school, his head landing in the playground where they played each day."--BOOK JACKET.
