Waiting on Wednesday: Day After Night


"Waiting on" Wednesday is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, and is a way for bloggers to share the upcoming books that they're longing for.




My pick:




Day After Night; Anita Diamant
Scribner - September - 2009







About the book:



Set in 1945, in the summer immediately following the end of World War II in Europe, DAY AFTER NIGHT tells the stories of four young Jewish women -- survivors of four different kinds of hell. They make their way to the land of Israel where they confront an uncertain future haunted by the past.

The protagonists -- Leonie, Tedi, Shayndel and Zorah -- are interned when they arrive, locked up behind barbed wire fences in a place called Atlit, a prison camp run by the British, who ruled Palestine at the time. In Atlit, the women meet and befriend one another as they grapple with a new life in a new land.
