After abandoning his beloved Mariam when she falls pregnant, and escaping her brothers bullets, Ibrahim abandons his own ideals and dreams of becoming a novelist, opting instead to follow his fathers wishes, and seek wealth and commercial success abroad. Thirty years later, lonely and disillusioned, Ibrahim returns to Ramallah to retrace the past he tried to leave behind. He sets out on a long and frustrating quest to track down Mariam, Along the way he encounters his son, Michael, a young man with spiritual powers that enable him to see what is unknown and find what has gone missing.

Moving and lyrical, Khalifehs novel weaves religious and political symbolism into a story of love and loss. At its core is Ibrahims-the Palestinians-agonizing but unrelenting search for a home.
