I added this book to my wish list not really caring one way or the other. I finished it today and I have to say it was incredible. It was so different than what I expected. It has been a long time since I've sat for an hour or two because I really just want to read my book and finish it. This one just sucked me in.
I enjoy books that take me into a situation I would never know about. This book is a good case. In 1945, Jewish folks who escaped Europe for Palestine, find themselves imprisoned by the British at Atlit. The reason is they are considered illegals because their paper work is not in order. Many of them went from the concentration camps to the detention camp.
The story follows a few of the women who were held there with other characters, British and Jewish, mixed it.
I don't want to give it all away, so I will just say that this is definitely my best book of the month!
Has anyone else read it?

Cozette, I've read the Red Tent and loved it. I haven't read Good Harbors though. After loving the Red Tent so much, I wasn't sure if I'd like a book by this author in a different setting. But, now that I found Day after Night to be so good, I'll have to give Good Harbors a try.
