Summary
"Soraida is a Palestinian woman living in Ramallah, in the occupied territories. In this city under siege and a strict curfew, she fights her own battle: despite the military occupation, violence and oppression, she is determined not to lose her humanity ... Soraida wonders how to reconcile the multiple facets of her identity -- as a woman, a mother and a comitted Palestinian. As a patriot, she is tempted to join the struggle, while as a mother, she is responsible for her two children and must keep her distance. The questions that haunt Soraida, her family and her neighbors take us to the heart of human experience: How to preserve one's humanity in the midst of oppression? How to resist being consum[ed] by hate and anger, caught up in the cycle of victim and victimizer? How to love one's homeland without laying exclusive claim to it"--Publisher's website
