But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
I read this book with interest and appreciation. The comparison between the family disengagement and the political one is interesting... The writing is fluent and flowing.
Disengagements: Final Call for Happiness

Here's the set-up:
What would you do if you were faced with a task that went completely against the values on which you were raised?


What would you do if refusal to carry it out would doom your professional career, but doing it might distance your wife, and could even tear your family away from you?

And what would you do if your husband was drawn into a swirling action that went completely against your humanitarian spirit? If his activities and life style differed so markedly from the values you wish to endow to your children?

"You don't break up a home. It’s that simple: a home is not something you take apart, period. Once you get married, you’re married for life. From then on, you just keep climbing the ladder until you reach the top. There’s no opportunity to stand still and look down, nor to look around to see whether or not it suits you. End of story."

It is with these words - spoken so authoritatively by Colonel Udi Am-Shalom - that the novel Disengagements - Final Call for Happiness begins. He makes this statement, however, before his sensitive wife Yael meets an experienced older man, a master artist of love and courtship, and before he himself has to evacuate a family from a Jewish settlement in the Gaza Strip in the line of duty, on government orders. Only after these two life-changing events does Udi grasp how lonely and isolated he really is, and how deeply he yearns for the most basic bond ”" the one between a husband and a wife.

This contemporary novel follows the unfolding events leading to the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, and their impact on the life of one typical Israeli family. Although this withdrawal is geographically far from them, it penetrates the deepest cracks in the walls of their home. Constantly flowing from the personal into the national it depicts the acute pain that disengagements entail, and the agony that ensues when something whole is unraveled. The national turmoil serves as a backdrop to the gradual crumbling of the Am-Shalom family, and to the reconstruction efforts aimed at bringing new hope and meanings.
One Reviewer Notes:
Originally published in Hebrew, “Disengagements: Final Call for Happiness” by Tamara Avner has been painstakingly translated into English by Lydia Ashri, allowing this emotional and somehow devastating account to be enjoyed by larger audiences... Told from several perspectives, this is the tale of one family that undergoes a seismic shift in direction and purpose. One couple that drifts apart then somehow finds the ‘we’ once again after events in the Gaza strip reach out and change who they once were. Rich, full and heartbreaking – this is a journey that can barely be described, only experienced.
