"David Berlin weaves together the personal, intergenerational, cultural, religious and political strands of a complicated story of passion and hope.... He invites us to take another look at worn-out solutions to this seemingly intractable conflict. It is a wonderful addition to the canon of writings on the Middle East." The Rev. Dr. Bill Phipps, moderator, United Church of Canada, 1997-2000
"Berlin's family history makes for the perfect example to illustrate the larger tale.... A beautifully written, truly heart-wrenching book." The Winnipeg Review
