What would you do if your brother turned out to be your enemy?
Gate of Mercy takes its readers into the heart of the Israeli-Arab conflict, taking the history of modern Israel to the very personal level of intertwined Israeli-Arab families.
Told from the perspective of eight-year-old Avram, the compelling story unfolds over seven decades. Bit by bit, the long-held secrets of Avram’s family are uncovered. A story of love and passion, of destiny and redemption—and of the bonds between different cultures that persist despite all conflicts.

Stimmen zum Buch

"I enjoyed reading the story, which encompasses the modern history of our people in the Land of Israel. The enchanting description provides the story with a dimension of roots and helps to soften the concepts of poverty and hardship felt by the early Jewish settlers. It is decreed for us to live here side by side, two peoples—Jews and Arabs: This is the message that has been woven into the length of this novel and gives added value to the meaning of shared destiny, even when the reality described here is fictional."
Shimon Peres

"'Gate of Mercy' brings Israeli Literature a new and original element of the Jewish-Arab relations."
A. B. Yehoshua

"'Gate of Mercy' is a well-written novel, complex and perceptive towards the root of the Israeli-Arab conflict as well as giving a new look on human nature and the nature of love. Legibly and fluently read."
Amos Oz
