The Lonely Tree is now available

March 15, 2010

I am delighted to announce the addition of this new novel to the growing list of Holland Park Press titles.

In The Lonely Tree, Yael Politis presents a very original view to Israel’s struggle for independence and survival.

We follow Tonia Shulman from the moment when she, a four year old, arrives with her family in Tel Aviv in 1934 until 1967, just after the Six Day War.

This is the book for you if you love:

Reading about a great love story – The first chapter describes Tonia Shulman and Amos Amrani meeting for the first time.

Historical novels – What was it like to live in British Mandate Palestine in the early 1940s, when you heard the terrible news from Europe and at the same time were told about German tanks approaching your country? What did it mean to live on a kibbutz? And defend it during a war of independence? Tonia’s story also shows us the differences between living in Tel Aviv and Grand Rapids in the early 1950s.

But above all The Lonely Tree is a beautifully written book that is difficult to put down. A must for all lovers of an epic novel.

Buy the book now for yourself or one of your friends from this page.
