From the promised Land

Author(s): Renate


In Renate's spellbinding story, we're taken along on an incredible journey of survival that spans three countries and one remarkable life. In sun-soaked pages, Renate shows us life on the kibbutz and how a young country experiences the miracle of statehood. Part of Renate's gift is to give us vibrantly real and intimate glimpses of what it's like to be a young mother, nurse and doting wife during turbulent times and in a strange land. She doesn't sugarcoat, but instead shows us both the pleasures and the perils of her life, including the terrifying time when she and her husband, back in Israel, are separated from their children during the Yom Kippur War. Fearlessly honest in her writing, Renate spares no detail. This outstanding book occasionally breaks the fourth wall, allowing the author to talk with readers and reveal to them how freeing it has been for her to write about the traumas in her life. This boldness and strength of spirit give From the Promised Land to the Lucky Country its shining truth and intimacy. “We are meant to enjoy the earth.” Renate says, and in this moving memoir, we experience a woman who has, despite all the odds, found purpose and peace.– Ellen Tanner MarshNew York Times best-selling author
