When World War II ended, thousands of survivors fled toward Palestine, hoping for a new life. The British military tried to stem the tide by detaining these "illegal" immigrants at Atlit, an internment camp in Israel. In this novel we come to know a handful of exhausted, fiercely courageous women who find themselves behind barbed wire just when they thought they could put tragedy behind them. It's a moving book about people with nothing left but their brilliant humanity.
