Sondra seems like the stronger one. She's older and became religious much earlier.

Yet don't underestimate her beloved cousin, Lisa. When Lisa commits to something - whether Judaism, Israel, or a husband who mysteriously disappeared - she doesn't give up easily.

In Growing With My Cousin, readers are invited into the deep, emotional and fascinating relationship and lives of Sondra, Lisa, and their families.

From Kansas to Phoenix to the Land of Israel, this gripping novel covers Jewish and human experiences common to us all.

From grandparents to grandchildren, this moving story connects the past, present and future.

In Growing With My Cousin, readers will find themselves - and find themselves unable to close this marvelous read.

About the Author:

Ester Katz Silvers writes: "My life has been full of miracles beginning with the fact that my father and all of his family escaped from Nazi Germany before the War. That combined with the miracle that my mother, born in a small American town, did not lose her Jewish identity gave me a traditional Jewish upbringing in Wichita, Kansas. Somehow, I didn't assimilate or intermarry as so many of my contemporaries did. Rather, I moved to Arizona for university, met my future husband, and together we became Torah observant Jews. After twelve years in Phoenix, Arizona, and with five children, we made aliyah and settled in Shilo, once home to the Mishkan/Tabernacle. We were blessed with another two children and now all are married with children of their own, all miracles. Every day I'm grateful to the Almighty for the miracle of allowing me to live in Israel for over thirty years."

    I loved this book! Being an olah in Israel, I could totally relate to the characters and what they went through on their journey. I fell in love with each and every one of them and cheered them on toward success in their klita and in their lives. The story was so relate-able and engaging. Thank you, Ester Katz Silvers!!
