All the RiversAll the Rivers by Dorit Rabinyan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Two nations-one land-and the fact could not be altered by all the borders and fences and barriers and roadblocks in the world. The land is the same land. In the end all the rivers flow in the same sea.

Arab and Israel two nations torn by years of war so what happens when the two come together in a relationship with preconceived ideals that becomes a hidden affair with no connection to the future and the reality of the past. What can become of this?

Liat now living in New York – a former Israeli soldier meets Hilmi an artist in Greenwich. Their attraction is instant and with New York in the background their relationship becomes a deadline as they both will return to their families in Israel. Families with different perspectives, they live in the moment trying to make sense of their nations past.

I found this book interesting and haunting. So much back and forth, hearts being torn between love and loyalty. A book that is definitely breaks down the culture barrier.

A Special Thank You to Random House Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
