In Beer-Sheba, the town of Abraham, an old man lies dying - a little man from Poland, earthbound and a stranger, particularly to his one, unforgiving son, Daniel. Once the little man, Haim Kalinsky, had to play God - when Nazis sodiers forced him to choose which of his two sons would live and which would be shot. Instinctively the father chose Shmuel, and left Daniel to fate. Now Fate has come full circle - for Shmuel died, while Daniel ultimately reached safety in Israel, there to grow into a strong handsome man, marred only by the memory of Yoram, his best friend, whose death is Daniel's guilt. --From publisher's description

Inspired by the author's own experience, a novel of one female soldier's fight to maintain her independence while serving in the Israeli army Ariel Ron is the spoiled yet fiercely proud daughter of a renowned Israeli colonel, entering the army for her two-year period of compulsory military service. Rebellious and self-centered, she is determined to keep her independence within this highly structured system. Ariel expects that being the colonel's daughter will win her favors in the army--but she is sorely mistaken. As she comes to terms with this reality, she embarks on a journey that forces her to look inward and reflect on her own values and connection to her homeland. Based on Yaël Dayan's own experience in the Israeli army and partly written when she was not yet twenty, this searing and honest first novel is a rare look at a young woman struggling to find her true self in a strange and uncomfortable environment

Yael Dayan, novelist daughter of the legendary Moshe Dayan and a public figure with a long and illustrious political career behind her, looks back at her life, scrutinizing it without illusions. Once a desirable, free-spirited young woman and a successful author, she lived with the sense that she held the world in the palm of her hand. And the world adulated both her and the young state she came from. She was an officer in the Israel Defense Force, the daughter of a renowned general, a successful writer--Death Had Two Sons, A Soldier's Diary: Sinai 1967--much in demand on the lecture tour, and a star of the gossip columns. Now in her 70s, she admits with touching honesty to missing both the vibrant 20-something she was, and the sober woman she became--a fierce political activist and parliamentarian for the left, a fighter for justice, women's rights and peace. Having resigned her last public position, she must reconcile herself to being a mentor, a participant instead of a leader, yet remaining center-stage on the Peace Camp scene. The narrator's warm, intimate voice and her rich intellect, as well as her insights, make for a powerful reading experience
