Longeuay makes the struggles between the British, Jewish, and Arab races real as he shows what Palestine was like just before Israel became their own nation.
Nikole
In Rebirth Dave Longeuay has done a masterful job of recounting actual historical events, while weaving a beautiful fictitious story around these events.

Format: Paperback
If you liked Exodus by Leon Uris, you will love Rebirth by Dave Longeuay. From the first page I was gripped by this tale of espionage, romance, and the proganist's pursuit of familial secrets. It begins in July 1945 as Charles Devonshire, a precocious teen-ager, travels to Palestine where he hopes to escape an abusive anti semitic father & solve the mystery of his parents' mysterious past. On the ship and in port he witnesses the British, professed enemies of the Nazis, nonetheless echoing Nazi anti-semitism. The book moves along at a suspenseful, exciting eventful pace for the next two years illuminating the emotional development of Charles, as extreme circumstances propel him into heroic manhood, as well as a close up view of the painful accurate history of Israel's rebirth as a nation. Along the way we are introduced to characters who seem absolutely real and interact naturally with the real historical characters whose names we recognize. The author says the novel is based on actual events and even the events that are made up feel like they certainly could have, maybe even did, happen. This history remains relevant to the ongoing middle east crisis. I was struck by the timeliness of the following:

"Moshe stood. `Heres the root of our problem. Most Arabs and Jews want peace. It's the radicals on each side who incite violence and who pressure peaceful Jews and Arabs to fight or die.' He pulled a paper from his satchel. `The grand mufti, Al Husseini, broadcast this message throughout Europe with Nazi funding: `Arabs, arise and fight for your sacred rights. Kill Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history and religion." (p. 276)

Earlier, in chapter 17, Charles helps out a young Arab man who has run out of gas for his motorcycle.

It says: Fleeing his fathers anti-Semitic organization, Charles Devonshire journeys into the most volatile landgrab in history. Post WWII Palestine. Charles pursues a beautiful but mysterious librarian Gladia, who introduces him to the elaborate Jewish underground.

This book is well written and guaranteed to bring out so much emotion in even the most hard hearted. Could not put it down. A must read. I won this from Goodreads.

Format: Paperback
The Goodreads summary above is extremely comprehensive and offers the reader just the right amount of information as an introduction to this novel. Charles fled his father's anti-Semitic organization and found himself in post-WWII Palestine. He meets Gladia fairly early in the novel. Gladia is portrayed as beautiful, intelligent, and witty. Charles takes an instant liking-and attraction-to her. Charles is an interesting character. He is somewhat lost in this new environment, but he still soldiers on. His questions lead to informative answers for both himself and the reader.

The author describes post-WWII Palestine vividly. He doesn't leave out many details, if any. The plot, environment, tensions, undercurrents, etc...are all made known. The reader will be able to feel the suspense, fear, and perseverance of the characters. The determination of the Israeli people is admirable and appears a tad effortless-they don't give up easily. Their combined strength as a people is impressive.

This book is an intense read, the reader will have a hard time putting Rebirth down. The book is well-written and contains smooth transition, recommended to adult readers.

Format: Paperback
Rebirth by Dave Longeuay is a fictional story set in 1948 when Israel was struggling to become their own country. Charles Devonshire, fugitive son of Nazi sympathizers, flees the United States and joins the tidal wave of Jewish immigrants returning to reclaim Palestine per Biblical prophecy.

Charles intends to go to the local university and become an engineering student. His intentions are to discover his parent's true roots. His parents abuse have left him scarred, filled with many questions. He loves the Jewish people and on his journey to Palestine a Jewish family takes him under their wing. One of the sons of this Jewish family, Samuel is with a sect of the Jewish underground that is violent. Charles is swept unwillingly into the clash; first, when his concern of Samuel causes him to follow him across shady areas of Palestine to a warehouse; then, when Charles falls in love with the sister of Dov, one of the leaders of the most violent undeground movement, the Irgun. The Jewish family that offered their home to Charles bans him from the house after one of their own becomes caught in the crossfire and they discover that Charles is also Irgun. Author, Dave Longeuay adeptly tells a complex war and love story that makes this novel a page-turner.

There are several plot points. Charles is in love with Gladia and at times it is what prompts him to work the intelligence aspect of the underground movement. Eventually, all the underground Jewish sects merge together to fight in unity. Charles is under age, and I love how Longeuay shows Charles' growth both physically and mentally throughout the book. Gladia is a simple girl and at times her impulsiveness gets her in trouble. The on again, off again of their relationship makes this love story unusual.
