How far can fraternal love stretch?
Samuel and Aron Katz’s fragile childhood connection is severed when Aron leaves pre-WWII Poland for Palestine, and yet again when Samuel is sent to an arctic Soviet Gulag.
Now, Aron must decide how far he will go to save his younger brother.
From Poland to wartime Tel Aviv, from a frozen Soviet prison camp to Allied-controlled Iran, and deep into Mandatory Palestine’s desperate preparations against Nazi invasion—Moon Path probes the ties that bind siblings and the forces that tear them apart.
Set against the backdrop of 200 fateful days in 1942, when the Jews of Palestine lived in terror of a Nazi invasion. Moon Path is fast-paced, meticulously-researched and character-driven historical fiction in the spirit of Ayelet Waldman’s Love and Treasure, Tatiana De Rosnay’s Sarah’s Key, and Charles Belfoure’s The Paris Architect.
“The intricacy of detail and research in author Steven Greenberg’s work makes his novel feel like both a reading and learning experience at the same time. The commitment to character development is so strong that it’s easy to forget that Samuel and Aron are fictional, for the struggles they go through reflect the real lives of so many people living all across Europe at the time of the Second World War. The plot is well paced to reveal the chain of events in both their lives, and their fraternal connection sees them through hardships, but is also put to the most extreme tests that human cruelty can throw at them. Overall, Moon Path is a superbly atmospheric work of historical fiction with characters that, once met, are never forgotten.”
