The Photographer’s Wife by Suzanne Joinson

Prudence is an 11 year old British girl sent to live in Jerusalem with her irresponsible dad. She becomes enamored with Eleanora who is married to a Jewish man fighting to overthrow British rule. William Harrington, a post world war II pilot, arrives to further complicate the lives of everyone. The novel is fast paced, lots of twists and turns, lots of historical details about the British occupation. Mostly I loved Pru and felt heatbroken for her.
