I recently finished four books which I highly recommend.
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves – If you are interested in animal studies (a chimpanzee being raised as a girl’s sibling, how they both interact with each other and with other family members), and how this situation altered the young girl’s life, then this is a book for you. I totally enjoyed the novel, and appreciate the author’s untiring research in order to bring credence to the novel.
Henna House – Henna is absorbing in more ways than one, along with tradition, culture, and Yemin Jews within the pages of this excellent novel.
Limbo: A Novel, holds a story line that is relevant in many aspects, especially regarding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in those who have been wounded while in the military, fighting a war in a foreign land.
Raquela: A Woman of Israel is an story about an amazing woman, a woman with deep regard for humanity and human life, and a woman of devotion to her country and her job as nurse during a crucial time in Israel.
