Rosie’s Song

Rosie is angry. Angry at the people all around who don’t understand her; at the disease that has struck her mother; at her brother who has changed his name from Morris to the Hebrew Mor and joined the military and left her to cope all on her own; at manipulative Michaela who wants to become a star at any price; at Mish, the guy she’s in love with but who only chews her up and spits her out. And more than anything, she’s angry because she isn’t acknowledged for the brilliant songs that she writes for a promising young pop combo. A chance encounter takes her from Jerusalem to a place that is nearby but so very far from her own reality—the West Bank city of Hebron. She becomes friends with two women: Emuna, a Jewish settler and Sana, a Palestinian Arab, and she becomes acquainted with the hatred and anger that saturate the area. In a suspenseful and moving plot and in language that is both up-todate and poetic, Tamar Verete Zehavi describes Rosie’s remarkable journey, a journey that will lead her to the discovery of her own true song.
