Sonia Richardson thought that, to make a difference in the peace process, she’d have to go to the front lines. Her husband Brett thought peace could be achieved at home, with car cruises and sing-along oldies.
In ISLANDERS FIRST, Brett must restore DHRR, Dresden Island’s dying heritage radio station, to prominence, and find the owners of a large collection of Hebrew books and records. Sonia, who feels neglected, volunteers to serve with Project Shalom, a peace mission based in Jerusalem.
ISLANDERS FIRST, complete at 92,000 words, also touches on the hot topics of war in the Middle East, immigration, and multi-culturalism.
