Hedva Rozen, a 15-year-old girl and her 19-year-old brother, both members of an ultra-Orthodox community in Bnei Barak, are involved in a sudden turn of events: a mysterious murder, a grave family secret, and an unexpected revelation about themselves. Little Sister (Ahot Ktana) is a novel whose core is the glimpse into the world of the "Haredi other."
At the age of 51, Chief of General Staff, Noam Einav, reached the pick of his military carrier, alone at the top, uncompromising, full with self confidence, arrogant and harsh. If a war broke, he must lead the IDF (Israel Defense Force) to victory. Suddenly everything goes wrong, nothing goes as expected, and a combination of personal and professional distress disrupt his life. Disaster follows disaster, love affairs crash down to pieces, and a critical decision ends in a tragic manner.
"Great Thriller but Lousy Narrator"
Red Days is a true story about two love affairs that took place during the British Mandate in Palastine.
The two love affairs were tied together in a fascinating story, involving Shoshna, the daughter of the well-known Zionist leader Dov Bar Borochov and undercover police officer Tomas Vilkin; and Roni Berstein and Avraham ("Yair") Stern, the leader of the Lechi (Lochamei Herut Yisrael - Fighters for the freedom of Israel) underground organization.
"Ram Oren is always good but the narration...."
