Excerpt

“No mama, no papa, no overseas pay”
“The day that utterly transformed David’s life—and a score or so others—deceptively
presented itself as a perfectly ordinary morning in Naples. Dawn erupted over the city, as ebullient as the inhabitants, if less noisy. Glittering silver fire over a bay already busy with innumerable small fishing boats, it glowed on the looming, still lava-encrusted slopes of Vesuvius, but passed over the clamor of the city itself: a shouting pushing crowd off in all directions for the day’s activities. It lingered just briefly on two godlike soldiers of the Occupying American army enjoying a last furlough before discharge….”

Another historical fiction gem by Sally Watson. The author writes: “I am an American Anglophile who lived in England for nearly 25 years. I first visited England, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and Turkey in 1955. I was fascinated by the history of the Near East, made many subsequent visits and many Arab and Jewish friends, a number of whom helped me get material for To Build A Land, The Mukhtar’s Children and Other Sandals. I have tried to get into the minds and feelings of the various peoples involved. I do like the people—if not always their governments! Among the recipients of author’s dedication: and for everyone who cares about historical truth, who is interested in modern Israel, and who likes a good read.
