Sarit Yishai-Levi’s dazzling The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem is a bestselling novel of stories told and untold, following four generations of a Jerusalem Sephardi family through times of dramatic change. Gerald Jacobs’ Nine Love Letters, based on true events, is the tale of two families who flee their homes in Baghdad and Budapest to seek safety in England. As they deal with the challenges, upheavals and horrors of the Holocaust, their fates become intertwined after an unlikely twist of fate. The authors discuss their books with Baroness Rabbi Julia Neuberger.
