Read ESTER'S CHILD by New York Times best-selling author Jean Sasson to learn why Arabs and Jews are united in bitterness.From the Author:
Q: Tell us something about Esters Child. JS: Once while visiting the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon, I heard an aged Palestinian woman spreading rumors about another refugee. Her vicious gossip led to research. I discovered an amazing fact, and I took that one fact and created a story around it.
Q: What do you hope for Esters Child?
JS: We are bombarded with nightly news about the current situation in Israel, and the horrific suffering occurring to so many people. Yet, few of us have little real detail of how or why the current conflict happened, or the truth of those Jewish and Arab lives. As Marion C. Garrety once said, “A novel is the chance to try on a different life for size.” My profound wish is that readers of Esters Child will try on the life of a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust, and then try on the life” of a Palestinian refugee. Esters Child provides the detail necessary for readers to try on a different life for size.”
