“In our house of cards, everything is well known. Yonatan is the one card that could not be touched. Remove it and everything will collapse.”
The author weaves love, history, politics, and human rights issues into a moving story.
Yonatan is a bisexual left-wing activist. When he meets Meir, a shy High-Tech entrepreneur, he falls in love for the first time, and the couple decides to get married and adopt twins. The family grows when fate brings Amal into their lives – a Palestinian girl, who is the victim of a family honor acid attack. Their perfect love story forms on the backdrop of a groundbreaking democratic union of Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
However, soon the euphoria of peace and unification begins to fade, and anti-liberal forces put the existence of the state, and the family’s own life, in danger.
