(From the publisher):
Edges takes the reader to an Israel before high walls formed a border, when, instead, metal wires hung "like hosiery lines" across the land. Liana Barish is fourteen years old when the suicide of her American father forces her mother, mourning, in despair back to her family—to Jerusalem where she grew up. For Liana it is the place where the powerful interdependence of mother and daughter—physical and spiritual—ends. It is the place of her sexual awakening.
