Author Lori Banov Kaufmann transports us to an unlikely love story set against the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE. National Jewish Book Award Winner, Rebel Daughter A young woman survives the unthinkable in this stunning and emotionally satisfying tale of family, love, and resilience, set against the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE. Lori grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. She received her undergraduate degree from Princeton and a masters from Harvard. She’d always wanted to write and in fact wrote The Ice Cream Lover’s Guide to Boston with her husband when they were both in grad school. While this important addition to the literary canon never made it to the bestseller lists, it did get the authors a lot of free ice cream! The intervening years were filled with making Aliyah and working as a strategy consultant for high-tech companies. Her expertise was helping military companies commercialize their technology for civilian applications. Upon retiring from consulting, Lori went back to her early love of writing. She was inspired to write Rebel Daughter after learning about the discovery of a 2,000 year old gravestone. She was so intrigued by the unlikely but true love story the stone revealed that she embarked on a more than ten-year quest with Prof. Jonathan Price and other leading scholars and archaeologists to bring the real characters to life. And she’s now a debut fiction author at the ripe young age of 62! She lives in Israel with her husband and four adult children.
