Due to the recent turmoil in Israel and Gaza, I decided I wanted to read some books in relation to the area. This was the first book I've read that deals with the lack of peace in the area.

Basically autobiographical and mainly about her grandfather, the late prime minister of Israel, this was a truly stirring book. She related parts of her life and alot of that had to do with her relationship with her grandfather. I was deeply moved, often to tears, by her recollections.

This is an excellent book, and one that should be read by anyone who is interested in Israel, in peace in the Middle East, and for those who are interested in the private side of any of the world's leaders.

I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could.
