Grains of Sand
Grains Of Sand: The Fall Of Neve Dekalim puts a human face to the people of Gush Katif as it closely follows the story of an Israeli family from pre-Intifada II until the Disengagement, which was the expulsion of Israeli citizens from Gush Katif in the Gaza Strip in 2005. The reader is given a rare opportunity to look into the hearts and souls of Gush Katif residents. This novel is historic fiction based upon the author’s life and experiences in Gush Katif, as well as those of friends and neighbors. It vividly reflects the thoughts and feelings of the people who lived there during those difficult times. The author, a teen at the time she wrote this book, was herself an expellee.
