about this item
A shocking discovery in Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity proves to be a curious keystone in the author's quest to piece together his identity in one of the most broken parts of the world. Exploring at least five centuries and traveling between four continents, traditions, and taboos, all while applying journalistic rigor and heartfelt charm to a string of mysteries and revelations, the author finds family and connection in the chaos of his - and history's - tangled strangeness.
