I'm sure these two plot lines resonated with me because of where I am in my life--dating after divorce and raising my daughter as a single parent (who also has a lot of help and support). Because Wendy's writing is beautiful and honest, the book is easy to read, and I flew through it. It's also not too long--only 181 pages with book club questions in the back. Any reader who enjoys women's fiction, stories about life-changing events and other cultures, and well-written prose will love Catch a Dream.
One last thing, the main character does suffer a traumatic event (which I don't want to put a spoiler here), but I always think it's important to let readers know to ask about this, in case certain things trigger them.
The places, people and situations described were so real I felt part of them. These women and their kids became completely immersed in Israel’s daily life, find jobs, make friends, have deep discussions with the locals about politics, and more. Both women find love, and discover how hard it is to give up their guard and be open with the man. Lily is the storyteller, and when her son reaches pre-teen, he rebels, and this, added to other facts, requires a reality check for Lily and son—and everything changes.
