Summary
  • In this sequel to her first memoir, The Bread of Angels, American writer and journalist Stephanie Saldaï¿1⁄2na meets her future husband when he is a novice monk at the interfaith monastery of Deir Mar Musa in Syria. He leaves the monastery, they marry and live in France, and then move into a former convent in Jerusalem, where their first child is born
  • "When American writer Stephanie Saldaï¿1⁄2na finds herself in an empty house at the beginning of Nablus Road, the dividing line between East and West Jerusalem, she is a new wife trying to navigate a fragile terrain, both within her marriage and throughout the country in which she has chosen to live. Pregnant with her first child, Stephanie struggles to protect her family, their faith, and herself from the cracks of Middle Eastern conflict that threaten to shatter the world around her. But as her due date approaches, she must reconcile herself with her choice to bring a child into a dangerous world. Determined to piece together life from the brokenness, she sets out to uncover small instances of beauty to balance the delicate coexistence between love, motherhood, and a country so often at war. In an urban valley in Jerusalem, A Country Between captures the fragile ecosystem of the Middle East and the difficult first years of motherhood in the midst of a conflict-torn city. What unfolds is a celebration of faith, language, family, and love that fills the space between what was shattered, leaving us whole once more."--Amazon.com

Summary
Showing us how love can pick up the broken pieces of our lives and make us feel whole, the author and her new husband, Frederic, start a new life on Nablus Road, where the fractious sides of Palestinian and Israeli Jerusalem collide—and where they are forced, as a family, to redefine their lives, their love and the place they call home, which is rife with violence
