Still has a rusty key Despite friendships that develop and lives that become entwined tensions among this melting pot of characters seem to be rising to the surfaceThis enchanting and irresistible novel offers us windows into the characters’ lives Each comes from somewhere different but we gradually see that there’s much about them that’s the same Homesick is a beautiful and moving story about history love family and the true meaning of home Could I share a tear Sometimes it is very tough to don t be emotionally biased by a last sentence or a last fragment of a book Even though I tried my best Well firstly I thought this book was only about Amir and Noa But no I was completely wrong This book belongs to Amir Noa Saddi Moshe Sima Modi Yatam Avram Gina Yatam s parents Due to so many stories related to real situations and correlated to each other What would be Modi without Amir or Amir without Yatam or Noa without Sima They are alike and completely different Gidi plays a role as important as Yatam and his family Probably we unfortunately didn t know about Yatam if Gidi was alive Second how our deepest thoughts can be so well hidden and how our flesh is weak Interesting that Amir had looked Sima differently and so did Sima to him while Noa tried her best to stay away of guys even she wanted something When Moshe got mad being expelled of his own house however he kept polite with his wife Such a way of keeping control Adding up Amir and Noa they were born to each other I mean it is not just because they want each other or they love each other but their inner thoughts are connected somehow Time doesn t exit to them for example if one is think about work and how deal it the other will think the same or if one miss having sex the other will feel the same Only one soul Although such perfection can be the mainly reason of being apart Well finally after I read the last paragraph before I finished the book I had remembered the Prologue and thought that Amir and Noa were apart And that last sentence was Amir s thought Fortunately the part doesn t belong to Amir at all I feel happy it was just Modi being Modi spontaneous and an adventurer trying to live Carpe diem if I can mention Now I am split between Modi or Yatam as my favourite character Both are sensacional About the writer he is brilliant how he wrote something uniue and simple with so many figures and complex emotions Destiny with some splash of efforts Beautiful book
