    I continue my armchair/hammock tour of Israel through time. In 1906 now as the heroine travels up the Galilee from small villages gathering plants, I travelled with her in the early days of the settling of Palestine by Jews. Epistolatory with notes by a pyschiatrist, evocations of religious thought. And, thankfully, not too long!

    Parts of the book including the last chapter take place here at Meir Shfeyah where I have lived and worked for the past 19 years.
