This kibbutz is just a few kilometers south of the Lebanese border. There is a beautiful beach not far away, and the valley around the kibbutz holds fields of wheat as well as groves of banana, avocado, and persimmon trees. On a normal day you would think you had found the Garden of Eden. But, during the Second Lebanon War, which lasted just 33 days, dozen of katyusha rockets rained down on Kibbutz Gesher Haziv. The families refused to move and exemplified the unwavering spirit of the Israeli people as they faced an unceasing barrage of missiles. The authors daily diary, and her interviews with the stalwarts who stayed in the kibbutz during these fearful days, gives us an awe-inspiring glimpse of the unwavering spirit of the Israeli people as they faced an unstoppable barrage of missiles. It goes beyond the war, into the days after the cease fire and the rebuilding of the homes and lives of the members of this border kibbutz.
