In the aftermath of WWII, Britain was still a colonial presence in pre-statehood Israel. There was a strict limit on the number of Jews who were allowed to relocate; "illegals" were sent back or placed in prison camps, adding further trauma to the shattered lives of survivors. This novel is a fictionalized account of the true story of Atlit, one of the internment camps. The story is told through the voices of four separate women who had vastly different--but all horrifying--experiences during the war. History "lite" perhaps, but a satisfying read that will also do a little teaching at the same time.
