Connecting the Dots of a Disconnected Life

Being raised in a Christian home did not protect Dvora Elisheva from physical, spiritual, or sexual abuse. As an adult, her memories were more like short video clips with significant parts of the plot missing. In 1982 she moved to Israel. She became friends with a Vietnamese-Chinese family that had found refuge in Israel during the Vietnam war. This led to her 20+ years of ...more

This book is one I would not normally have read. The true story of a woman who goes though many traumas in her life, moves from America to Israel and back and forth, and through it all never loses faith in Jesus? That last part would have put me off. Not my thing. No.

But I read it. I read it because I know the author. I met her when we were both technical writers. I knew her as someone incredibly gifted in verbal communication. I didn’t read her technical documents, but I knew she’d won prizes f

"Connecting the Dots of a Disconnected Life" kept me turning the pages, even though reading non-fiction is unusual for me. Yet I felt compelled to read it through to the end. Dvora Elisheva writes with amazing transparency, pulling the reader in with every word and every page. I found I couldn't put it down. That's the true test of a well-written life story by a talented author. In this true story, Dvora will take you on a journey through a dysfunctional family, abuse, earnestly seeking her own ...more

My favorite quote from the book is "But the dots do connect, and when they do, the picture is glorious." I could relate to much the author said, although our stories are quite different. Dvora has a wonderful way of telling her story and bringing it all together. There is much hope as many of us wait to see how our own dots connect. I have already recommended this book to a friend.

Finding Your Way

Connecting the Dots is the story of a fractured life made whole by Christ. Though the names, places and dates differ, this very well may be your story. If you find yourself wondering who you are and how you got here, this book may help you find your way.

Connecting the Dots was provided to me at no cost for the purpose of an honest review.

Powerful Personal Story of Hope

As autobiographies go, this one stands alone as a testimony to Faith's role in overcoming the horrors life can throw at a person and coming out victorious on the other side of the Valley of the Shadow. Although Dvora's experiences provide difficult reading, her story provides encouragement for others who may have been, or are currently facing such challenges. This reviewer gives this book five stars for honesty and integrity in recounting a tough life without becom
