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.

People interested in knowing the history of the reestablishment of the State of Israel in 1948 - a land destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE, Romans who exiled Jews from their homes because the Jews didn't want to be ruled by a foreign nation with different ideologies - as well as readers who want to know more about the country that is in the news frequently, will learn much from this excellently written and very informative novel. The author, a Christian, has a keen and practical understanding of Israel and its history.

The protagonist in this drama, Charles, grew up in an anti-Semitic family, yet he comes to grasp and appreciate the importance of Israel to Jews and to the world. He falls in love with beautiful Gilda and learns about the Jewish underground which is fighting against the British who are siding with Arabs because of the British need of oil. These British are stopping Jews from returning to their homeland, despite the Jews suffering from and losing relatives to the Nazi holocaust.

Classified as historical fiction, REBIRTH by Dave Longeuay is in reality not a novel that fits easily into one category. It is part romance, part history lesson, part theological study and part lesson in survival.

Set in Palestine in 1948 it follows the beginnings of the new Israeli state as Holocaust survivors and Jews from around the world attempt to reunify their people and establish a Jewish state in accordance with what they believe is the fulfilment of ancient biblical prophecy.

One would think that after surviving the deprivation of Hitler's death camps, returning to what was foretold as the promised land would be a piece of cake. No so, we are told. It seems that the Mufti of Jerusalem was in concert with Germany in the late 1930's in solving what both agreed was "the Jewish problem". In addition, it was politics as usual and even the British were not all that happy about encroachment into their "piece of the oil rich Middle Eastern pie" after the war. The general view of Israel as "the spoiler in the Middle East" continues to this day.......as one can easily see by just picking up a daily newspaper.

To the casual reader, it remains a mystery how this small country has, over the past sixty-some years survived to become what amounts to a super-power in the Middle East. Perhaps, it is their strong religious beliefs coupled with a resilient never give up attitude that has helped this "nation of miracles" that, although surrounded by enemies, survives to this day in the face of almost overwhelming odds.

While this book was definitely worth the time spent reading it and did manage to pique my curiosity concerning the history of Israel, to someone truly interested in the in depth details, this is more a love story set in turbulent times that would qualify as "history lite". 3 1/2 STARS

This story was very easy to get into, I picked up the book and started reading it instantly was brought into the story. Easily captivating and great read.

I won't give away the entire story, but it is about a brilliant boy, Charles who fled his father's anti-Semitic organization in California and found himself in post-WWII Palestine. Finding himself there by hiding the truth about the reasons why he's even there and also because he falls in love with a beautiful young lady, who fog his decisions. He finds himself saying yes to something he isn't so sure he wants to be involved in. It is a thrilling story that teaches lessons about religion, country, territory and how people hold on to their own truth.

I can't wait until the next book is out!
