But then her parents decide that something's missing from their lives, and having already lost one child to a Catholic marriage, they are adamant that Lesley must grow up with a stonger sense of her Jewishness than her brother did before her. So, all of a sudden Lesley's parents decide it's time to sell up the family business and emigrate to Israel, taking Lesley with them. Lesley of course is horrified and cannot imagine leaving the Canada she knows and loves... However, Lesley doesn't truly realise what she's given up until she arrives at the kibbutz (near the Palestinian border) where they have decided to make a fresh start. With fewer creature comforts, less privacy and solitude, Lesley struggles to settle in... until she begins to become fascinated by a Palestinian boy she can see working with his donkey on the other side of the river...
This is a good book and educational but, although enjoyable, it's quite rough and stilted in style. Not a flowing read, so I'm not yet in a hurry to read the sequel, 'Broken Bridge'.
