Book Talk: Hope Valley – With Haviva Ner-David & Amy Gottlieb

Hosted By: Ritualwell

Join Rabbi Haviva Ner-David for a reading and discussion of her new novel, Hope Valley, with poet and novelist Amy Gottlieb.

Hope Valley is the story of two women who come together to form the unlikeliest of friendships. Tikvah, a Jewish-Israeli second-generation Holocaust survivor, is a frustrated artist with multiple sclerosis and a husband who suffers from trauma from the First Lebanon War. Ruby, a Palestinian-Israeli second-generation Nakba survivor, is a renowned artist who has come back to her village after many years abroad, to be treated for cancer. At first, Ruby befriends Tikvah to get into her house and find the diary her own late father left hidden there, before he was expelled from the village in 1948. But as a relationship develops, the women begin not only to open up to each other’s narratives and humanity, but also to uncover secrets from their own lives—past and present—that will have lasting consequences for their futures and well as those of their families. How the women ultimately come to terms with life’s difficulties, disruptions and disappointments, and with each other, speaks to the enduring strength of the human spirit.
