“Please, for the love of all things holy, read Safekeeping by Jessamyn Hope. It follows Adam, an addict from New York City, traveling to an Israeli kibbutz (rural communal settlement) in 1994 to fulfill his grandfather’s dying wish. But the woman he’s set out to find, and the legend behind a storied family keepsake he carries, soon set him on a course far more complex than he’d anticipated. Safekeeping
is filled with the things that I love most in books: a time period that is close to my heart, characters that are beautifully dangerous, and a setting that feels incredibly alive in Hope’s hands.”
