Stretching the Borders Review

Product Description

Sometime reality is beyond all imagination
When you play the game, stretching the borders, you can get lost and forget the rules.
Naomi leads a so-called peaceful life. She lives in a lovely apartment in the center of Tel Aviv with her loving, supporting husband and their two teenage children, works for a daily newspaper, and in her free time concentrates on art. But all this isn’t enough when her entire world is turned upside down one evening after which she’s drawn into a maelstrom of emotions and urges, lies and enigmas. Secrets from the past surface and merge with new ones, and Naomi discovers she’s living a complex life with parallels in several worlds: the people closest to her are also hiding from her their secrets and abusing her trust.
˃˃˃ Forgiveness, absolution, and feelings of guilt
Stretching the Borders raises questions about the essence of forgiveness, absolution, and feelings of guilt, as they face secrets and lies, some less white than others. The threads wrap around each other in a conflict solved only through a process of an agonizing journey, which doesn’t always achieve its desired comfort.
˃˃˃ Painstaking exposing of feelings
With a sharp scalpel and piercing sensitivity, Yael Shachnai invades her protagonist’s soul, painstakingly exposing the feelings and thoughts hiding behind the pretty clothes and carefully applied makeup, while also bravely and honestly scrutinizing concepts such as happy families, relationships, family dinners, protective motherhood, loyalty, and love.

MarksvilleandMe reviews Stretching the Borders

written by Yael Shachnay

This book was very interesting in the effect of explaining how we perceive people to how they really are. You never quite know a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes. It also shows if you spend your time looking at others lives you sometimes lose control of your own life. 

The story revolves around Naomi her past and of course her watching her neighbors life from her window. Secrets and lies begin to emerge and Naomi herself must pull herself out of it with an end you will just have to read for yourself. 

You can purchase Streaching the Borders on Amazon.
