UPDATE: Winner KatieAmanda!

I’m participating in the Literary Blog Hop where book bloggers are having a lot of great giveaways. The giveaways are open until Wednesday, June 27. This is the book that I’m giving away.

Israela by Batya Casper

“In Israel, the lives of three women interweave with the story of their country. Ratiba, an Israeli journalist, turns her back on her heritage to marry an Israeli Arab. Her sister Orit, an actor, lives alone and longs for her lost sister. Elisheva is a nurse who dedicates her life to the wounded and the dying. As their lives unfold, the three women find themselves facing choices they would never have envisioned. This is a story of secrets and alienation, yet also of hope and heroism. It is about Arabs who save Jews from disaster and Jews who heal Arabs. It is the story of everyday people torn and desperately searching for the right path. Here, the ancient pulsates in present time and the biblical holds prominence with the secular. “

  4. “This is a story of secrets and alienation, yet also of hope and heroism. It is about Arabs who save Jews from disaster and Jews who heal Arabs.” If that doesn’t make the whole WORLD want to read this book, I don’t know what else will. I know I’d love for a chance to win/read this novel. Thank you, also, for introducing us to such a wonderful book!

    Thank you for your generosity, and for being part of the Literary Giveaway Hop.

    PEAR TREE – Rachel (Bluwstein)
    Conspiracy of spring
    a man awakes and through the window sees
    a pear tree blossoming,
    and instantly the mountain weighing on his heart
    dissolves and disappears.

    O you will understand! Is there a grieving man
    who can hold on stubbornly
    to a single flower that withered
    in last year’s autumn gale,
    when spring consoles and with a smile
    presents him with a giant wreath of flowers
    at his very window?

  16. The review you’ve written made me keen on what the book is all about. Wish I could win.
