Product description

The bestselling author of "Good Harbor "and "The Last Days of Dogtown "returns to the geography of "The Red Tent "and re-imagines a true event in the aftermath of World War II in an intensely dramatic, profoundly sad new novel. In her most moving and powerful novel ever, Anita Diamant portrays richly imagined female characters in a haunting fictionalization of the post-Holocaust experience. Atlit is a holding camp for "illegal" immigrants in Israel in 1945. There, about 270 men and women await their future and try to recover from their past. Diamant, with infinite compassion and understanding, tells the stories of the women gathered in this place. Shayndel is a Polish Zionist who fought the Germans with a band of partisans. Leonie is a Parisian beauty. Tedi is Dutch, a strapping blond who wants only to forget. Zorah survived Auschwitz. Haunted by unspeakable memories and too many losses to bear, these young women, along with a stunning cast of supporting characters who work in or pass through Atlit, begin to find salvation in the bonds of friendship and shared experience, as they confront the challenge of re-creating themselves and discovering a way to live again. "Day After Night "is a devastatingly beautiful novel, a story only Anita Diamant could tell, and it will make every reader weep.
