Publisher Description

Named a Best Book of the Year by The Washington Post and The Salt Lake Tribune
Just as she gave voice to the silent women of the Hebrew Bible in The Red Tent, Anita Diamant creates a cast of breathtakingly vivid characters—young women who escaped to Israel from Nazi Europe—in this intensely dramatic novel.

Day After Night is based on the extraordinary true story of the October 1945 rescue of more than two hundred prisoners from the Atlit internment camp, a prison for “illegal” immigrants run by the British military near the Mediterranean coast south of Haifa. The story is told through the eyes of four young women at the camp who survived the Holocaust: Shayndel, a Polish Zionist; Leonie, a Parisian beauty; Tedi, a hidden Dutch Jew; and Zorah, a concentration camp survivor. Haunted by unspeakable memories and losses, afraid to hope, the four of them find salvation in the bonds of friendship and shared experience even as they confront the challenge of re-creating themselves in a strange new country.

Diamant’s triumphant novel is an unforgettable story of tragedy and redemption that reimagines a singular moment in history with stunning eloquence.

Day after Night

When I first read about this book thought it sounded depressing.
Not so! This is a must read.

Long legion ,

A real letdown

I loved the Red Tent so maybe I was expecting too much from this book. It was so simply written, the characters so one dimensional that the book was actually boring. The subject lent itself to something a lot more in depth than this. It struck me as being written for a teenage reader. The dialogue was stilted and the characters were boring. Not impressed whatsoever with this one

Red Tent and Day After Night

Both books truly terrific, I was sad when I ended them. Hope she'll write more fiction.
