A memoir  of my time lived in Israel, 1950-1959. A story of the painful and poignant journey of a young family trying to integrate into Israeli society in the 50's.My life intersected with a critical time in Jewish history. It is complex and multilayered. It is the seldom told story of a young North American idealistic family full of hope and sense of adventure confronted by the realities of pettiness, doubt, and drudgery of daily life. Our experiences foreshadowed the complex challenges that would grow for the young country. It is written with insight, humour, honesty and passion and leaves the reader smelling and feeling the land of Israel of the 1950's, with all its brilliance and troubles.
