"ACountry Betweenreminds us that grief is as indispensable to joy as light is to shadow. Beautifully written, ardent and wise." --Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Secret Chord, People of the Book, and March

Moving her family to a war zone was not a simple choice, but she's determined to find hope, love, and peace amid the conflict in the Middle East.

When young mother Stephanie Saldana finds herself in an empty house at the beginning of Nablus road--the dividing line between East and West Jerusalem--she sees more than a Middle Eastern flash point. She sees what could be home.

Before her eyes, the fragile community of Jerusalem opens, and she starts to build her family to outlast the chaos. But as her son grows, so do the military checkpoints and bomb sirens, and Stephanie must learn to bridge the gap between safety and home, always questioning her choice to start her family and raise her child in a country at war.

A Country Betweenis a celebration of faith, language, and family--and a mother's discovery of how love can fill the spaces between what was once shattered, leaving us whole once more.
