In a Tel-Aviv hospital during Operation Desert Storm, Sharon Lapidot is a beautiful young nurse in an affair with a married doctor.
Sharon’s colorful and exciting life is ultimately destroyed by powerful and eroding mistakes. But her courage and wisdom lead her to an unregretful commitment.
Vividly told, this compelling journey of love and lust, honor and betrayal, loss and redemption, will move you — and perhaps even change you.
Leigh watches as the narrow stretcher is quickly pushed toward the ambulance, and suddenly finds herself reliving the moment when she learned her mother’s darkest secret, deeply hidden since before eighteen-year-old Leigh was even born.
The revelations Leigh finds in her mother’s journal bring surprise and hope, excitement and disappointment, truth and lies, pain and relief. Through the journal, she discovers her mother’s intimate, vivacious relationships, as well as a wild side to the proper and careful mother she thought she knew.
At the same time, she is fascinated by her mother’s courage and resolve. Does one make up for the other in a daughter’s eyes? Will Leigh be able to see beyond her mother’s lies? Will she choose the truth? Or will she compromise?
