Love Behind Enemy Lines by Jeanette Anderson is a tale of forbidden romance between Palestinian Jannah al-Jarbouni and Israeli Efron Oved. From the moment their eyes met, both Efron and Jannah had felt an irresistible attraction toward each other. Their union, albeit risky, was full of passion and undeniable urgency. Their romance came to an abrupt halt when an airstrike killed Jannah's family. Yet, this was not the only tragedy that tore her heart; the evidence found at the spot framed Efron as the reason for this airstrike. With this knowledge, Jannah knew there was no hope for their love. Unbeknownst to her, evil lurking in her distant family was the root cause of not only her agony but also the culprit murdering innocents in the name of justice.
A romance that is destined to end, yet tugs at the reader's heartstrings to hope for a joyous reunion of the lovers, is the most memorable one. Reading such a love story not only entertains readers but also inspires them to spread the word about peace and love and the many atrocities of an egotistical war. Love Behind Enemy Lines is one such romantic fiction. The horrid graphics of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict in the book encourage the audience to observe firsthand how such conflicts only give rise to misunderstood violence. This conflict resulted in suicide bombers, massacres, and destruction.
Words have power, and Jeanette Anderson has chosen just the right words to paint the picture of violence and hopelessness. The beauty of her craft is that even in such a dark portrait, she managed to create strokes of love. From the conversations to their thoughts, every single sentence is filled with emotions of pain, craving for a better tomorrow, and anger at the unfairness of it all. The difficult decisions that Jannah and Efron had to take make readers scratch their heads. Ranging from the plot twists to the diverse portrayal of the characters, Love Behind Enemy Lines by Jeanette Anderson has proved to be a commendable read.
