Item description for Between Two Deserts by Germaine W. Shames...

Jerusalem lies at the end of an old Roman road, a city swathed in light and sorrow.

Coming to Jerusalem to fulfill her grandfather's dying wish, Eve Cavell finds herself poised on the fault line of three worlds---Muslim, Christian, and Jewish. Inspired rather than frightened by the ghosts and warring children that surround her, Eve emerges from mourning to a life larger for its dangers. The lost and alone---an Australian street preacher, an apathetic Palestinian, an alienated Israeli investigator, and others---find a way to her door. Soon she attracts the attention of Mozes Koenig, an elderly Hungarian author in search of a heroine. Eve, with her lodestar eyes and solitary dance, captivates the old man's imagination, and together they create an opus to humanity in a city made of stone.

With lyricism and allure, Germaine W. Shames captures a world of understanding amid chaos and finds a place for peace within war through her characters' triumphs and calvary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Between Two Deserts?

Across Religious Boundaries  Mar 20, 2003
It is refreshing to find a book, set at the heart of the Middle East crisis that is not biased for any of the protagonists. It allows all parties to the conflict their dignity and puts a human face on a war that is little understood.
These are fully human characters and their colliding lives make for a powerful literate read.
Jerusalem of Gold  Dec 21, 2002
"Between Two Deserts" caught my eye on the "new books" stacks at the library because I'll give a second glance at anything about Israel; fortunately, I decided to bring this book home and read it. Eva is awoman rediscovering her heritage and exploring a new world - her two deserts. As she interacts with a cavalcade of different characters (including a number of men, it turns out) we get glimpses of her poetic soul; I would have liked more than glimpses.
It left me empty and perplexed  Dec 18, 2002
This book is in many ways an allegory more than a novel. I felt the characters were disjointed and the various sub-plots, while woven into eachother through Eva Cavell, the protagonist, were too amorphous to tell a story. It was apparent the author was trying not to be judgmental - that is fine and appropriate for a novel of a very complex area. But I want to know more about the characters. I simply could not understand what made Eva "click". She was intended as a woman of mystery, but her character needed to be more fleshed out. The writing itself was good - descriptive and evocative.
