An Improbable Friendship is the dual biography of Israeli Ruth Dayan, now ninety-eight, who was Moshe Dayan’s wife for thirty-seven years, and Palestinian journalist Raymonda Tawil, Yasser Arafat’s mother-in-law, now seventy-four. It reveals for the first time the two women’s surprising and secret forty-year friendship and delivers the story of their extraordinary and turbulent lives growing up in a war-torn country. Based on personal interviews, diaries, and journals drawn from both women—Ruth lives today in Tel Aviv, Raymonda in Malta—author Anthony David delivers a fast-paced, fascinating narrative that is a beautiful story of reconciliation and hope in a climate of endless conflict. By experiencing their stories and following their budding relationship, which began after the Six-Day War in 1967, we learn the behind-the-scenes, undisclosed history of the Middle East’s most influential leaders from two prominent women on either side of the ongoing conflict. An award-winning biographer and historian, Anthony David brings us the story of unexpected friendship while he discovers the true pasts of two outstanding women. Their story gives voice to Israelis and Palestinians caught in the Middle East conflict and holds a persistent faith in a future of peace.

The extraordinary true story of a secret forty-year friendship between two women who should have been bitter enemies. One: the beautiful Raymonda Tawil, the mother-in-law of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The other: Ruth Dayan, widow of General Moshe Dayan, the most celebrated Jewish general since Joshua and the man who spent much of his military career trying to hunt Arafat. The story of these two remarkable women's turbulent lives and their clandestine friendship, brilliantly told by award-winning author Anthony David, gives voice to Israelis and Palestinians caught up in the Middle East conflict. It also provides an insight into the Middle East's most influential leaders from two prominent women on either side of the conflict. That Ruth and Raymonda continue their friendship to this day, despite its possible danger, is a testament not only to their affection for each other but also their joint commitment to seeing an end to the violence in the Middle East. Theirs is an unwavering faith in a future of peace, and An Improbable Friendship a beautiful story of reconciliation.

In 1967, when Jo Ivester was ten years old, her father transplanted his young family from a suburb of Boston to a small town in the heart of the Mississippi cotton fields, where he became the medical director of a clinic that served the poor population for miles around. But ultimately it was not Ivester’s father but her mother—a stay-at-home mother of four who became a high school English teacher when the family moved to the South—who made the most enduring mark on the town. In The Outskirts of Hope, Ivester uses journals left by her mother, as well as writings of her own, to paint a vivid, moving, and inspiring portrait of her family’s experiences living and working in an all-black town during the height of the civil rights movement.
