Description: "Staircase of a Thousand Steps" lifts the veil from a mystical land where jasmine and dung mix and the inconceivable is embraced as commonplace. In a Middle Eastern village that traces its history back to Abraham, the men gather nightly beneath a tree named Moses' Finger, and the women meet at a burned stump where "the earth breathes".

Through an ancestral gift, young Jammana experiences the memories of those closest to her -- the village midwife, Faridah, her grandfather Harif, and her mother Rafa. But as she unwittingly uncovers the village's secrets -- including a forbidden love affair and Faridah's chilling decision during a birth -- old grudges move like a slow burn across the fields and ignite.

Set in Transjordan just before the 1967 war with Israel, "Staircase of a Thousand Steps" braids a chorus of voices into a poetic, haunting tale of loyalty, longing, and accidental betrayal.
