“Day After Night” made me neglect household chores, slap together less-than tasty dinners for darling husband, and ignore other pressing duties.
From page-one I was instantly enthralled by Anita Diamant’s book–a moving fact-based novel of young Holocaust survivors yearning to make a new life in Israel right after World War II. The richly drawn main characters, Tedi, Zorah, Shayndel, and Leonie, are imprisoned in a British “detention” camp near Haifa and must adjust to their new lives as well as overcome the horrors of the past. They and the superb cast of supporting players became, if only for a short time, part of my life. A marvelous 5 star read.
