With timeless, breathtaking prose Juliette de Bairacli Levy paints a stunning picture of life on Sea of Galilee with her children during a summer spent on its shores. In Summer in Galilee we are treated to an intimate view of the area and its history by a woman who dwelt there with her family of two children many years ago.
In Summer in Galilee Juliette de Bairacli Levy tells the story of Tiberias, both past and present. She offers a close up view into the lives of religious Jews and into her own life as a Jew. She offers hope as a Jew, a Gypsy, who doesn’t care for the nationality of a person, whether Jew or Arab but sees each person as an individual.
I found Summer in Galilee to be engrossing. I enjoyed every moment spent in its pages. Juliette de Bairacli Levy lived a fascinating life during her time in Galilee. Except when the Sea of Galilee was tempestuous she refers to it as the Lake of Galilee for that is what it put her more in mind of. We are treated to her life on its shores, her travels, her views on the history of the area, her knowledge of folklore and medicinal plants. As you turn each page you learn more about the area, the history, the plants and this interesting woman who lived her life in a manner as natural as the world around.
I highly recommend Summer in Galilee. It is entrancing and you will find yourself wrapped up in each and every page, reluctant to put it down and leave the magic of Juliette de Bairacli Levy’s wonderful prose and the world as she shows it behind you.
