Considering the rising hostility towards Israel and the increasingly blatant anti-Semitism around the globe – which has become all the more evident during Israel’s war with Hamas over the past weeks – Canadian author Nora Gold’s recently published novel, Fields of Exile, is very timely.It is a thought-provoking novel; while focusing primarily on the disturbing topic of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism on university campuses, Fields of Exile is also an exciting read, complete with humor and romance.
