Description: In a first, nine politically-diverse women, former Palestinian political prisoners, sat around a table in a small room in Rumallah, in the occupied West Bank, to share their stories of incarceration. These non-writers learnt to express the reality of their time in prison, of the separation from their children, of the endless struggle against Israeli occupation, to produce heartful narrative that go beyond simply recalling the details of their sentence or revisiting their trauma. Instead, this unique volume transforms their experiences of the self, giving readers an :exceptional" insight into an almost unknown women's world, of life and love behind bars and beyond.
