About the Book

Tahara, a devoted Jewish wife, goes to the prison for a conjugal visit with her beloved husband, Yoel. Go with her as she makes the shocking discovery of a hidden dimension of the heart, which plunges her into an anguished inner battle to determine who the real pure warrior in her life is. In an incredible encounter, she learns that propriety is no match for the wisdom of a timeless master of love who sees with eagle eyes and gently leads her to surrender to the true desire of her heart.

About the Author

Rachav Shirah is an American-Israeli writer with a Master of Arts in French Literature and a long held interest in Jewish mysticism. She has spent much of a lifetime writing poetry and stories and keeping notebooks of her dreams during sleep in which she recorded the many visitations of an Israeli warrior lover. “Writing the dream texts, which came from somewhere deep in the heart,” Shirah explains, “taught me how to craft stories in a way that confronts the reader and draws her into the boundless world of the self that accepts her whole being, not just the ‘allowed’ parts. As the immortal Pascal attests,” she continues, “‘Le coeur a ses raisons que l’esprit ne connaît pas’ (The heart has its reasons the mind does not understand). Writing “The Meeting” was an exercise in stillness; it forced me to stop, truly listen to my heart and to what I was feeling, and to acknowledge that message as a valid inner truth, even if that truth appeared to conflict with defined external boundaries. My hope is that this story will do the same for the reader.”
