In 1967, not long after the Six Day War, three young Arabs ventured into the town of Ramla, in Jewish Israel. They were on a pilgrimage to see their separate childhood homes, from which their families had been driven out nearly twenty years before during the Israeli war for independence. Only one was welcomed: Bashir Al-Khayri was greeted at the door by a young woman named Dalia.

This act of kindness in the face of years of animosity and warfare is the starting point for a remarkable true story of two families, one Arab, one Jewish; an unlikely friendship that encompasses the entire modern history of Israelis and Palestinians and that holds in its framework a hope for true peace and reconciliation for the region.

Feb 2015......I certainly learned a lot listening to this book.....especially with what's going on in the news lately. Unfortunately, true peace seems far, far away.

An excellent book detailing the history of the conflict between Israel and Palestine, primarily through the eyes of citizens that are affected by that conflict.
