This is a love story about loss. It is an emotional and evocative "cri de coeur" of heartbreak, but a heart not broken. It's an answer to the petty temporal, finite divisions, here between an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man, that succumb to the eternal, infinite force of love that binds us all together. In the end it is a beautiful word portrait to replace the photo never taken. And, it is a powerful statement of the need to put aside the fear and "embrace one's enemy" in peace, harmony, and even love.

A touching, raw and gorgeous love story with an ending which snatched the air from my lungs. * Stylist * A fine, subtle and disturbing study of the ways in which public events encroach upon the private lives of those who attempt to live and love in peace with each other, and, impossibly, with a riven and irreconcilable world. -- John Banville Enthralls and delights ... Rabinyan beautifully loops the story from season to season, depicting Liat and Hilmi's lives and love vividly and memorably. * Publishers Weekly * I stand with Dorit Rabinyan. Love, not hate, will save us. Hatred sows hatred, but love can break down barriers. -- Svetlana Alexievich, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature Even the (asymmetrical) tragedy of the two peoples does not overwhelm this precise and elegant love story, drawn with the finest of lines ... Astonishing -- Amos Oz Rabinyan is a generous writer who puts her characters first... Rabinyan's writing reflects the honesty and modesty of a true artisan. She is meticulous, to be sure, but at the same time she doesn't appear to be straining, and this is what sets someone like her apart from those who merely practice the craft of writing. -- Dorit Shilo * Ha'aretz *
