"Israela is a contemporary historical novel that gives incredible insight into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It takes the perspective of a few women in Israel whose lives are intimately connected to their homeland and the politics of the Middle East. It manages to maintain objectivity and optimism while keeping the reader's attention to the very end."
“This is the most even handed view that I have seen of a polarizing conflict since it portrays the humanity of the competitors for some of the most sought after real estate in the world. It reveals the character, values, flaws, and heroism of ordinary yet often noble citizens in their struggle to exist in a capricious environment where bad things often happen to good people who dare to hope for peace and dignity in harsh and combative circumstances. The complexities, idealism, and passion of the story's characters are revealed in a fascinating and suspenseful tapestry viewed through the eyes of women rather than politicians or warriors whose views more often get published.” –Gary G.

“Readers not previously acquainted with this apparently unsolvable conflict, will gain an understanding of the mortal dangers faced by the Israeli population on a daily bsis from terror attacks, while at the same time Casper has shown an even-handed understanding of the Palestinian point of view.” –Frieda K.
