All the Rivers
Two lovers are tested and torn by the bitter cultural, political, and religious conflicts that divide their families. Liat is an Israeli scholar studying in New York City and Hilmi is a painter there on an artist's visa. Their chance encounter one afternoon leads to a passionate affair and life gets complicated as that passion evolves into love. Although this award winning novel has been banned by Israel's Ministry of Education, many critics are praising it as an important work of art that shows us love is a far greater power than hate.
