"In the present, Maya Laor is a first-year astronomy student at the University of Virginia, doing her best to maintain her distance from the people around her. In the recent past that occupies her thoughts (to which readers are privy), Maya is back home in Israel during the days leading up to the suicide bombing in which her boyfriend was killed... while waiting to meet Maya, who was late. This story paints a vivid picture of Israel, as well as of the contrast between two cultures, the ache and terror of guilt and loss, and the healing power of love."
