about this book

From journalist Amy Wilentz, winner of the PEN/Martha Albrand Prize for nonfiction and the Winning Writers Award, and a nominee for the National Book Critics Circle Award, this poignant first novel is a powerful story of the complexities of life amid the crisis in the Middle East. Set against the backdrop of the world's most volatile conflict, Martyr's Crossing follows the story of an Israeli lieutenant ordered to refuse refuge to a Palestinian woman and her sick child, an incident that leads to riots throughout the West Bank.
