The Land Agent

by J. David Simons
£8.99   paperback  Saraband (2015)

The Land Agent by J. David Simons Set in 1902s Palestine, this compelling novel by the author of bestseller An Exquisite Sense of What Is Beautiful tells a haunting tale of love and finding a home in the world.
 
Palestine, 1920s. Working as an agent for one of the richest men in the world, Polish-Jewish immigrant Lev Sela finds himself swept into a relationship with Celia Kahn, a mesmerising Scottish pioneer, after stumbling upon a strategic area of land that doesn’t exist on any map.
 
An outstanding historical novel, The Land Agent brims with passion, tension and conflicting ideals, and is populated with an extraordinary cast of characters reflecting the melting pot of the era. Effortlessly navigating the labyrinths of its time and place, it evokes a troubled, yet beautiful land.
 
This is the concluding part of J David Simons' epic Glasgow to Galilee trilogy. The earlier titles - The Credit Draper and The Liberation of Celia Kahn - have been re-edited and published as special 2014 editions by Saraband.
