The Gilboa Iris

Gefen Publishing House  2012

Dara Harow, daughter of a rocket physicist for the US department of defense, sends her parents into a tailspin of dual-loyalty anxiety when she plans to wed Roni Ben-Ari, an Israeli officer in an elite counter-terrorist unit. When the Harows are targeted by a terror cell in hot pursuit of technology not yet found in any country's arsenal, Dara finds herself at the center of a hierarchy of terror that threatens her life and the lives of those she loves. It is a timeless love story, set mainly in Israel, of Dara and Roni, a feisty American student and a brilliant Israeli commando, against the backdrop of global terror involving the infiltration of the US's defense stratum and a double homicide on American soil. The Gilboa Iris conveys how the casualties of terror attacks and wars are not only those who die, but those who survive them, and those that are left behind.

The book merges wit, intrigue, romance, heartbreak and the triumph of the human spirit, telling not only Dara and Roni's story, but the story of the Jewish people and the land of Israel.
