In 1937, a young Eva Salomon leaves Germany for Palestine, yearning for a life free of fanaticism. Two oppressive forces have marred her childhood: her father's rigid orthodoxy and the cruelties of the Nazi regime. Rebelling against her past, she finds love with a man who is anything but “kosher.” Duncan Rees is a British constable in the Palestine Police Force and as such represents a regime increasingly at odds with the dream for a Jewish state. As friction between Britain and the Jews intensifies, Eva falls under ever greater pressure to choose sides. She also runs smack up against another form of fanaticism.
Set during the complex upheaval of Palestine in the 1930s and ’40s, Eva Salomon’s War tells of the struggle to find a faith that does not blind, a love that does not lie, and solid human truths in the midst of ideological ferment.
