A Greece-based tour guide describes the elevated role of godparents in her adopted country, where godparents become a lifelong part of the child's family.

And former NBC Middle East correspondent Martin Fletcher explains how his latest novel, set in Israel during its early years as a modern state, evokes the extraordinary drama of Israeli life in that era.
