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.

"We're far more accustomed to—and comfortable with—seeing women portrayed as victims of war who deserve our sympathy rather than as resilient survivors who demand our respect…" Former ABC journalist Gayle Tzemach Lemmon tells the riveting true story of Kamila Sidiqi and other women of Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban’s fearful rise to power. In what Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea, calls “one of the most inspiring books I have ever read,” Lemmon recounts with novelistic vividness the true story of a fearless young woman who not only reinvented herself as an entrepreneur to save her family but, in the face of ferocious opposition, brought hope to the lives of dozens of women in war-torn Kabul.

Once a desirable, free--spirited young woman and a successful author, she lived with the sense that she held the world in the palm of her hand. And the world adulated both her and the young state she came from.

Having resigned her last public position, she must reconcile herself to being a mentor, a participant instead of a leader, yet remaining center--stage on the Peace Camp scene. The narrator's warm, intimate voice and her rich intellect, as well as her insights, make for a powerful reading experience.

She took the boy to lunch at the McDonald’s across the street that day. And she continued to go back, again and again for the next four years until both their lives had changed dramatically. Nearly thirty years later, that young boy, Maurice, is married and has his own family. Now he works to change the lives of disadvantaged kids, just like the boy he used to be. An Invisible Thread is the true story of the bond between a harried sales executive and an eleven-year-old boy who seemed destined for a life of poverty. It is the heartwarming story of a friendship that has spanned three decades and brought meaning to an over-scheduled professional and hope to a hungry and desperate boy living on the streets.
