Because of her dark-haired beauty, Delphine Roberts became a reluctant success, first as a model, then as an actress. Her work with a great French director brought her international movie stardom. A film with a famous Italian director gave her a daughter. However, none of this satisfied her. Searching for something else in her life, she and her little girl explored the world together, traveling from London to Vietnam, from Paris to Istanbul, and beyond. Fascinated by the Middle East, she explored and lived in many parts of that ancient world, including Palestine. Deeply affected when she sees the massive wall severing Palestinian lands from Israeli territory, Delphine is determined to learn the facts and see first-hand the hardships faced by ordinary Palestinian citizens. Eventually, she raises the money to produce and star in a movie about the Palestinian territories. Although working conditions are brutal, she is determined to finish the movie, even if it's the last she ever makes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The allure of this narrative is deceptive in that it offers a cunning misdirection. Apparently, it is about a young, beautiful, talented, intelligent, self-sufficient, self-confident woman, who dictates terms for life herself and to hell with everyone else, but almost before it's realized, the reader is drawn into a much more compassionate and caring story of involvement, commitment, and even love, not for a person but for a people. By the end, one cannot help but to have fallen in love with her, as well, and to feel how deeply she feels her need to give herself and her talent in an attempt to make a better world."-Clay Reynolds, Series Judge
