In August, 2000, Emma Williams arrived with her three small children in Jerusalem to join her husband and to work as a doctor. A month later, the Palestinian intifada erupted. For the next three years, she was to witness an astonishing series of events in which hundreds of thousands of lives, including her own, were turned upside down.
