“What a magnum opus! And so riveting! The gallery of personae, the major and minor plots woven together, the delving deep into emotions and attachments and ideas, not to speak of highlighting the historical resolution of the partition of Palestine on November 29, 1947. And the person of Jeanne – a glowing star in the firmament!”
Yael Medini (Sharett), Author of Pale Blue Valley.
‘At times it is as though you are in the midst of a Graham Greene, then it switches a different kind of tension that rings with notes of Ian McEwan’s ‘Saturday’ or ‘Enduring Love’. But in the end it is Lord’s voice and the muscular heft of his own family story that burn through, leaving ‘Come November’ with the flavours of both thriller and as a parable too for this particular time of tension in the Middle East.’ Justine Hardy, Author
SCOTT LORD brilliantly weaves together the story of the redemption of the Jewish people, with the founding of the State of Israel, and the redemption of an American family searching a lifetime to put their broken lives in order. Add in an assassination and vivid description of romance in the countryside of Umbria, Italy, and you have a novel you can’t put down….fabulous!
Stanley P. Gold, Former Chairman, Los Angeles Jewish Federation.
“Come November” is a compelling tale blending the international intrigue surrounding the UN creation of the state of Israel with the lives and loves of characters that you care about. It is a wonderful depiction of discovery, disappointment, reconciliation and ultimately, forgiveness—in short, a rich and satisfying read.
