To the End of the Land by David Grossman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a book! Just the sheer writing and planning of it must have required the writing of five stories of the three main characters and two smaller characters. Beautiful writing; I think a reviewer mentioned that Grossman has written the best insight into a female character (by a male writer) since Reynolds Price wrote Kate Vaiden....and I would add Wallace Stegner's women in Crossing to Safety.
Such a poignant story of people and place: Israel.
