BH, I'm so excited about this. For years, I wanted to start up a podcast where I'd start interviewing some of the more interesting orthodox Jewish authors out there, so readers could engage a little more with the person behind the book.
Yael Shahar is a veteran contributor to Sasson Magazine, and has just published a new book called Returning, which absolutely blew my socks off, when I read it.
You can find out a little more about who Yael actually is, and why her book had such a strong impact on me by listening to the podcast, below.
I think (hope....) that if you have access to the iTunes store, you can also download it there, too, I don't have a smartphone (as we all know...) so I can't double-check that myself, but this is meant to be the case.
So, take a listen, and find out how a cowgirl from Texas came to be doing counter-terrorism in the Israel army, and what on earth all that has to do with PTSD and coming to write the book, Returning.
