Join Kathy Furtado in the Readings Gallery as she shares her memoir Days of Awe with us!
Should you trust your intuition when it comes to love? This memoir is the remarkable true story of a 1983 meeting on a bus in Jerusalem, Israel that led to a marriage, just ten days later. It is the account of the unlikely meeting, an unplanned honeymoon adventure in Europe, and an improvised first year living together in Jerusalem, working and studying at Hadassah Hospital and the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus. Through their story, we experience the questions, struggles, tragedies, wonder, and humor in every life; and the ultimate merging of two independent and strong-willed souls.
K. Furtado is author of Days of Awe, Ten Days in Jerusalem that Changed Our Lives, a memoir of her first year of marriage in 1983 Jerusalem. Specializing in non-fiction, the author finds the truth always more interesting than fiction. She enjoys being outdoors, reading, language study, and community building.
