5th Annual One Book/One Jewish Community

This year’s selection is The Lie by Hesh Kestin.  The Lie is a gripping, morally complex thriller about a woman torn between idealism and maternal devotion in present-day Israel.  Dahlia Barr, an attorney infamous for defending accused Palestinians in Israeli court, is jolted when her son Ari is kidnapped by Hezbollah, and she must decide whether to alter her principles in order to save her son.  

Stephen King says The Lie is “a page-turner that will engage your mind and emotions in a way few novels do. The narrative is headlong, the issues have never been more current, and the characters come alive from the page.  The Lie is what great fiction is all about.”  If you have not yet read it, make it your  next book and then join us for what is sure to be an engaging and provocative discussion.
