About this title


This is a bold tale of clashing cultures. This love story between a Muslim and a Jew, creates a world of characters caught in webs of historical misunderstandings which leads to violence. This book mixes contemporary and the historical worlds in a bold tale of clashing cultures. The love story between a Muslim and a Jew, documentary film director Aisha and historian Benjamin, is set in modern Spain against the vibrant and colorful background of a film festival, the location shoot of a Hollywood epic, the seductive intentions of a movie megastar, and the violent actions of terrorists who wish to reclaim that country for Islam. Telling its story in multiple voices, Red Star, Crescent Moon confronts major cultural and political dilemmas of our time, creating a world of characters caught in webs of historical misunderstandings which leads to violence. "For those of us who have followed Robert Rosenstone's writing career, Red Star, Crescent Moon hits a new peak: a novel with deep historical roots that is also filled with action, romance, and intricate plotting." Louis Breger, author, Freud: Darkness in the Midst of Light "Red Star, Crescent Moon: is not just about the kaleidoscope of history and politics and pop culture: it's about what being human means in the face of terror." Leslie Brody, author Red Star Sister "Like all great love stories, Red Star, Crescent Moon takes place at the dangerous intersection of passion and all that threatens to destroy it." James Goodman, author Stories of Scottsboro
