The story of three generations of American jews originally from the Ukraine. The granddaughter, in the present, falls for a Muslim and their relationship is the centre of this story. They decide to retrace their roots in Jerusalem, resulting in huge cultural differences and tension. This fascinating section really gets across the Israil/Palestine problem in an impressive novel.

All the Things You are by Clemency Burton-Hill

When New York journalist Natasha Bernstein loses her job and discovers her fiance has been keeping a dark secret, her world collapses. Turning to her family, she takes inspiration from her formidable grandmother Esther, who runs a community centre in downtown Manhattan. As she starts to rebuild her life, Natasha's friendship with Rafi - the enigmatic architect working on Esther's centre - restores her sense of wonder at the world and her faith in who she is. But when Rafi and Natasha take a trip to Jerusalem, they are plunged into a story far deeper than their own. Here, questions of family and loyalty mean more than life itself, and they must ask themselves what they are ultimately prepared to fight for. In a divided world, is it history or love that makes us who we are?
