THE SOUND OF HER VOICE is Sara's exploration of what it was like to live in an unfeeling world as a child, the healing in writing, what her three homes are to her, how marriage healed her, and, ultimately, how she came to understand and forgive how her mother could, in her way, give her away. Sara sprinkles her book with haikus that go to the heart of such a journey. She has written her book for all who need to find that voice within them in order to heal.
About the Author
Sara Gelbard is a woman of three homes - Israel, New York, and Punta del Este in Uruguay. This may be because she never had a home. She was born on one of the first Israeli kibbutzim in Western Galil near the Lebanon border, of Polish parents who escaped the tremendous horror of Europe. They escaped, but their families did
not, and consequently, their commitment to the kibbutz was ideological, necessary, and fueled by a broken heart. Her book, THE SOUND OF HER VOICE, sensitively explores her coming to terms with the emotional loneliness of her upbringing and how she repaired that wound to create a life full of love, work and beauty. Today, she is a townhouse real estate broker in NYC helping others find their homes.
