The Family Orchard
Nomi Eve, signed by author
$15.00

They left Eastern Europe for Israel and emerged, six generations later, in America: Yoachanan and his wife Esther, who loved lon and happily despite Esther’s affair with the local baker; her granddaughter, Avra the thief; Mirian, a grenade-throwing seamstress who sewed her family destinies into her cloth; the twins Zohar and Moshe, who ran across the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem as boys and who, as men, faced a tragedy that would haunt their family for generations to come; and Eliezer’s American-born daughter, who would one day take his stories and cast a spell of her own. Shylt sexy and often droll, firmly rooted in the everyday business of living, the author’s debut novel is about the sorrow of immigrants and the joy of pioneers; the secrets that bind families together and the legends that sustain them. Illustrations.
