From the author of the #1 international bestseller-turned Netflix hit, The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem, comes a mesmerizing novel about three generations of women who have lost each other―and the quest to weave them back into a family.
THE WOMAN BEYOND THE SEA by renowned Israeli journalist Sarit Yishai-Levi, author of the #1 international bestseller, The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem, is an immersive historical novel that spans the life stories of three unforgettable women. Deftly translated by Gilah Kahn-Hoffmann, THE WOMAN BEYOND THE SEA will be published in English for the first time by Amazon Crossing on March 21, 2023.
This beautifully written, multi-generational story traces the paths of three women who lead entirely separate lives. There’s Eliya, a young woman who thinks she has finally found true love with her charismatic and demanding husband, an aspiring novelist, until he ends their relationship in a Paris café, spurring her suicide attempt; next is Lily, Eliya’s mother, who vanishes for long hours every day, and Eliya has no idea where she is; and a third, mysterious woman who has abandoned her newborn baby on the doorstep of a convent on a snowy night in Jerusalem.
Seeking to heal herself, Eliya is compelled to piece together the jagged shards of her life and history. Her heart-wrenching journey leads her to a profound and unexpected love, renewed family ties, and reconciliation with her orphaned mother, Lily. Together, the two women embark on a quest to discover the truth about themselves and Lily’s origins…and the unknown woman who set their stories in motion one Christmas Eve.
As each woman confronts upheavals in her life, Yishai-Levi, a truly gifted storyteller, masterfully ties the three together, striking chords of love, hate and despair. This English translation is sure to make many more fans of Sarit Yishai-Levi’s novels.
