This is the great epic of the return to Israel of the survivors of the Holocaust and the early establishment of the Jewish nation. Some of the characters are real and some fictional. Most of it is told through the eyes of an American nurse and an Israeli freedom fighter. A truly great book that will also give you an insight into the historical facts. A really great read.
It's a bit of a long read but worth the time. An amazing story that sucked me in and gave me a new perspective on the struggles the Jews have faced and the way they selflessly have of themselves to ensure the future generations of their people.
This is the first book I've read by this author. It is a wonderful historic novel of the birth of the nation Israel. Don't let the small print and many pages discourage you. It held my attention from beginning to end. Besides a good novel I also learned a lot about the toughness of the early pioneers of Israel many years before it became a nation. If you are a lover of the history of Israel I highly recommend this book.
