A true story of romance, secrets, and the forces of history, told through the letters exchanged by the parties.

Celia Antopolsky travels to British-controlled Palestine with her best friend, Lillian, in search of adventure and a view of the Holy Land. Great Britain has promised to preserve Palestine as a home for the Jewish people. But political and economic pressures threaten the Jewish dream.

When Lillian returns to her boyfriend in New York, Celia stays in Jerusalem, enjoying her active social life and her job working for a British engineer. A promising poet herself, Celia receives lively and passionate letters from two men back home. One is Ellis – charming and talented, he hides a secret. The other is Harry, a struggling young lawyer, whose eager admiration Celia can’t help but encourage.

Eighty years later, Celia’s daughter reads the letters and uncovers the story behind her parents’ strained relationship.


A native of New York City and the daughter of Celia Antopolsky, Andrea Jackson practiced law for twenty years before turning to creative writing. She holds a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Missouri - St. Louis. She and her husband have two children and five grandchildren. Website: www.andreajackson.net.
