Truly great books help us understand people who we might prefer to think of as 'other.' This one spans 3 generations and several decades of conflict in the Middle East... but it is also a story of mothers and sisters who love but don't understand eachother, who worry about how easily the men in their lives are distracted or manipulated. It put to shame my knowledge of both the history and geography of the area, and gave me a much more personal perspective on current events.
