Maggie learns the hard way about Israeli bureaucracy and wonders whether bad luck comes in threes or multiples of three. They settle in the independent village of Ramat Yishai, Northern Israel, with its idiosyncratic rainbow population.

The October 1973 Yom Kippur War breaks out and Reserves officer Arnon leaves abruptly to find his artillery unit and is away for six months.After four years and the birth of twins in 1975 Arnon makes the decision to return to England. The books is threaded through with Maggies thoughts and feelings about the scenically beautiful and historically stunning country to which she elected to become a temporary immigrant with reflections on the inexorable nature of politics, love and war.
