About the Author
Diana Bletter is a writer whose work has appeared in a wide variety of publications, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Commentary. Her first book, The Invisible Thread: A Portrait of Jewish American Women, with photographs by Lori Grinker, was shortlisted for a National Jewish Book Award. In 1991, she moved from New York to a seaside village in northern Israel where she lives with her husband and children, and volunteers in a burial circle.
"In this tightly woven tale, where war and loss hover over four American women living in Israel, love blooms between friends and lovers, and Bletter's reverent rendering of the Jewish burial rituals implores us to grab hold of life."--Michelle Brafman, author of Washing the Dead
