This is a love story set in the volatile context of the founding of the State of Israel, and the concomitant rise of the Palestinian longing for a homeland. Horowitz brilliantly finds the common humanity of both Arabs and Jews. Her novel is of epic proportions, spanning many decades and three generations. From the moment I started reading it, I couldn't put it down.

        If you crave a stirring and not easily forgotten read, consider this historical novel "Jaffa Beach" about life in Palestine before Statehood. You will find yourself steeped in the stringent rigidity of Hassidic fanaticism in a family bound by poverty. In the Arab world, you will be introduced to a well to do life style, though adherent to the strictures of Islamic theocracy. Into this dichotomy, a tender and suppressed love story emerges.
