Glory, Hope and Glory

New York Times Bestseller: “A sprawling action-packed novel” of Israel by the author of The Hope (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

This follow-up to The Hope plunges immediately into the violence and upheaval of the Six-Day War of 1967 and continues the stories of its multiple characters and of Israel’s dramatic struggle for survival across the years. The Glory takes readers through the terrors of the Yom Kippur War, the famous Entebbe operation, and the airstrikes on Saddam Hussein’s nuclear reactor—and ending with a final hope for peace.

Illuminating the inner lives of real Israeli leaders—including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, and Ariel Sharon—the Pulitzer Prize–winning “master of the historical novel” tells the chronicle of Israel’s fight to exist with a compelling sense of both the broad significance of this time in history and its personal impact on those who lived through it (Los Angeles Times).

“A genuinely enjoyable read.” —The Detroit News

“A top-notch storyteller.” —Time
