Henna House

(2014)
A novel by

 
"A touching coming-of-age story" (Publishers Weekly) in the tradition of Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, about a young woman, her family, their community and the customs that bind them, from "a storyteller of uncommon energy and poise" (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times).

This vivid saga begins in Yemen in 1920. Adela Damari's parents' health is failing as they desperately seek a future husband for their young daughter, who is in danger of becoming adopted by the local Muslim community if she is orphaned. With no likely marriage prospects, Adela's situation looks dire - until she meets two cousins from faraway cities: a boy with whom she shares her most treasured secret, and a girl who introduces her to the powerful rituals of henna. Ultimately, Adela's life journey brings her old and new loves, her true calling, and a new life as she is transported to Israel as part of Operation On Wings of Eagles.

Rich, evocative, and enthralling, Henna House is an intimate family portrait interwoven with the traditions of the Yemenite Jews and the history of the Holocaust and Israel. This sensuous tale of love, loss, betrayal, forgiveness - and the dyes that adorn the skin and pierce the heart - will captivate readers until the very last page.
