From the good optimism following the Camp David summit in 2000 to the beginning of the intifada in 2001, Jamie was once within the thick of it—Nablus, Ramallah, Hebron, suicide bombers, hard-line Jewish settlers, Palestinians dwelling lower than curfew, and the coming of the hot millennium after a Christmas in Bethlehem. This pleasing, particular, and hugely illuminating memoir chronicles a transitional interval within the heart East and lines the author's studies as she redefines her feel of nationality, morality, historical past, and faith.
