Description

So much more than a romance, this is a tale of transformation in an exotic setting. Esty's life was laid out for her from birth. She would marry one of a handful of young men suggested to her and settle down to raise a large family in a tiny space within the closed community of her parents, near to and yet far from the modern world. But Esty has decided to risk all by escaping while she still can. Will she make it to the other side? Mark, who is struggling with his own life changes, hopes that Esty will find a way through her troubles. He is fast falling in love with her. Separately and together, in Jerusalem and London, Esty and Mark need to overcome many obstacles in their endeavour to achieve their dream.

Our customer reviews

Though I love novels set in the magic of Jerusalem, I am not normally a fan of seesaw romances. But to my surprise, I found Miriam Droriâ??s Neither Here Nor There an arresting story. She writes sensitively and insightfully of Esty, a young woman who breaks out from her highly sheltered life in one of Jerusalemâ??s super ultra-Orthodox communities. On the other side of the light railway tracks that divide the city, she struggles to find herself. While dodging ultra-religious enforcers, she encounters caring people and ultimately love in the strange, new secular world, so remote and unknown, and yet so close by. Drori delves imaginatively into the hearts and minds of Estyâ??s family left behind, her newly made friends, and above all Mark, a new immigrant from England, who becomes her patient rock and salvation as she navigates her course on â??the other side.â?? An extra-ordinary book that takes romance writing to a higher level. D.r. Brauner, author of ANOTHER GOD: A Novel of Independent Scotlandshow more
