    eye opening look at war and terrorism

    War correspondent Catherine 'Caddie' Blair successfully covers the Middle East by keeping herself detached from the victims of the violence. The journalist credo of disinterested objectivity fails her while she and her lover, gifted photo journalist Marcus, drive in Lebanon hoping to interview an extremist. Bullets are fired at their vehicle leaving Marcus dead and Caddie no longer unbiased. Caddie seeks revenge.--- Caddie quickly gains a new lover Alexander Goronsky who encourages her to avenge the murder of Marcus. She soon becomes ¿native¿ using God to defend the use of weapons to bring death and destruction on those who kill for a living. Still, courage emboldened by vengeance, she dives into skirmishes like an immortal, but also feels her life lacks meaning. Caddie turns to the deceased Marcus in hope that she can find sustenance to live again.--- Readers will not feel the same about war after reading Masha Hamilton's eye opening tale that vividly brings to life and death the horrors of constant terrorism with no end in sight. The fascinating story line grips the reader from the moment that caddie and crew meet death in Lebanon and never slows whether in Jerusalem, Gaza, or elsewhere. The cast seems genuine as the audience will see behind the masquerade of brave boasting bravado to the fears of real people; reminiscent of ALL¿S QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT with its insider look at individuals at war. Those silver spooned chicken hawks who insist they have made the world safer should read this novel so they can somewhat bridge THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US that they blithely ignore in their safer world.--- Harriet Klausner
