New. "This is the story of an American woman, Helen, who is traveling alone in 1965 to the port of Eilat situated at the southernmost tip of Israel on the Gulf of Akaba. Though married, she has encounters with two men, one a Christian Jew from Iran, who tries clumsily to make love to her and whom she rejects, and another, Uri, an Israeli engineer who fascinates her because of his aura of remoteness and mystery. This novel is not the Israel of politics and religion. It is the Israel of the desert that borders the Red Sea, awesome and primitive in 1965, as one might imagine it has always been. "
