Summary:
Pamela Olson’s memoir reveals the humor and beauty of Palestine and the terror and heartbreak of life under occupation, from the perspective of a small-town girl. “It’s love in the time of occupation as Pamela Olson … takes us on the emotional roller-coaster of her very personal experience of life in Ramallah — and in doing so lays bare the human drama of a people … determined to live free,” said Tony Karon, senior editor, Time Magazine.
