Questions like these make me appreciate novels that offer a glimpse into that world, books that speak with authority and insight about what it is really like there. Joan Leegant's "Wherever You Go" is one of the better books of this type I have read in 2011.
"Wherever You Go" is the story of how three very different American Jews, strangers all, converge in Israel only to have their lives forever changed by circumstances none could have foreseen. Yona Stern is there in hopes of reconciling with the sister who has not spoken to her for ten years but finds that Dana, by now a hardcore West Bank settlement zealot, wants nothing to do with her. Mark Greenglass, a respected Talmud scholar who initially returned to his religion as a means of escaping the addiction that was killing him, is back from a family visit to New York and wondering where his religious fervor has gone. And young college student, Aaron Binder, finds himself drawn to a radical fringe group and its charismatic leader after deciding to stay in Israel a while longer before returning to the U.S.
Leegant tells their individual stories in alternating chapters, building each character layer by layer until they seem very real to her readers.Read more ›

A very interesting novel, interweaving three stories. A bit slow reading initially, but towards the end you just can't stop reading until you're finished.Published on February 4, 2013 by Arline L Mayer
