Stretching the Borders by Yael Shachnay is very well written. It is a contemporary love story, and focuses on Naomi, a married mother of two teenagers, who lives in Tel Aviv.
She works for the newspaper and spend her free time dabbling in art and cooking.
She has the perfect life, until things start to turn sour. She becomes enthralled by her neighbors, spending hours watching them through the window. Slowly she falls into a double life, a life filled with lies.
But Naomi isn't the only one keeping secrets, those closest to her have secrets of their own...secrets that are taking advantage of Naomi's trust.
It truly is a good book, and although it switches back and forth between points of view, once you get inside Naomi's head, you can feel how real the story is. There is something very familiar to Naomi's story...leaving your past, starting a new, having a wonderful life, only to have your past come back with a vengeance, and doing everything you can to keep that life hidden at all costs. I think in some way, most people can relate to that.
All in all, it was a good book, and easy to get into. If you are interested in reading a new book, you can get your copy of Stretching the Borders on Amazon for .99.
