I stuck with the book to find out the resolution of the crisis- the wrongful charges of terrorist financing by an innocent businessperson. However, the story was far too long and drawn out filled with tedious preachy passages which become stale very soon with repetition. Novels are fictional but this one did not ring as plausible at all. Heard this book on CD and the reader's reading of Hebrew words and phrases was abysmal and grating. Ragen, a writer of sensationalist novels, churning out yet another one. The resolution of the crisis was incredibly anticlimactic, so all in all, not a good use of reading time.

If it wasn't for a skilful writing, the book would be about the topic that was already touched by many. I think that any person doesn't have to go far away, to deserted place, to meet some gurus, in order to find a life's meaning and to sing the tenth song. In this book the reader can clearly see the writer's love for Israel, especially for Jerusalem.

Really good read how a girl finds herself through her father being accused of filtering money for terrorists. She runs away to another country, mother follows and all find new peace in their lives.
