To Cross the Ocean Review

Nettie thinks she is just going on a right of passage trip-a journey that many teens her age take-but what she finds is a man. Full of mystery and adventure, Eric saves Nettie and it seems no matter where she goes, he is there! Despite knowing absolutely nothing about Eric, Nettie falls in love. She soon finds out the real story of Eric and she believes in her head she will never see this love through, but her heart speaks differently to her. What will win in the end? Her head, or her heart?

This book is FANTASTIC! I absolutely loved the characters and their dynamic. The twists and turns had me wanting for more with each page read and I can't wait for book 2! It is a sweet romance with a hint of mystery which is always a winner, it caught me hook, line, and sinker. I couldn't put it down-it only took me one night to read it because it was just so great. Although this was originally written in Hebrew, the English translation is excellent! Book one of more to come, it sets a great scene and places the bar high for this young writer. I absolutely enjoyed this book, and if you decide to read it-I know you will too! This is a great read for any romance book lover!

About the Author:
Zehavit Tal On was born and raised in Jerusalem, Israel, where she currently resides with her husband and two kids. She studied in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (B.A in Sociology and Education), and the Northeastern University extension in Israel, (M.A in Education Counseling). She has been working as a teacher since 1998. Ever since she learned how to read and write, that is how she spent most of her days. She always knew that someday she would write books, and as a young girl, she wrote poems, stories and even a short novel.
With the outbreak of the Internet era, she wrote in various blogs on a wide range of topics. The desire to write a book was inside her the entire time and did not let her rest. She knew she had stories to tell. When she received an email explaining about how the Holocaust is becoming a myth and that the number of Holocaust deniers is increasing, she decided that it was time. She wrote a book to incorporate the Holocaust story of her family, a story that might help people admire one another more; after all, we are all creatures of the same God.
"To Cross The Ocean" is her first book--the first of a trilogy.
