Eighteen year old Rosalind left South Africa for Israel with her doctor boyfriend, Foxy, so they could pursue their dream of helping the wounded soldiers together. But when his jealous temper again gets the better of him, she decides to end their relationship, but still continue her nursing studies.

When she’s assigned to Ward 21, Rosalind finds herself inexplicably drawn to Eyal, the bearded soldier with the sparkling brown eyes who, even laid up in a full-body cast, asks her out — and teaches her about passion and sex.

Though Rosalind struggles to understand her confusing emotions toward Eyal, who arouses her physically but whose interests and upbringing are so different from her own, she eventually accepts his marriage proposal.

'Together They Overcame' offers a surprisingly honest and explicit depiction of a newlywed couple’s first two years of sexual gratification in marriage as they face family drama, a mother-in-law's hostilities towards the wife because her mother is both German and Catholic, cultural prejudice, and the hardships in a young country in the process of establishing itself.

Juliet Aharoni’s novel, 'Together They Overcame', weaves fictionalized versions of her own experiences living in Israel into the romantic tale of a newlywed couple striving against all odds. 'Together They Overcame' is an opposites-attract romance set in Israel after the 1956 Sinai Campaign.

The novel depicts a newly-wed couple experiencing sex for the first time and how their sex-life helps them cope with many difficulties.The author has presented the couple's love-making explicitly but tastefully. Sex plays an important role in the young couple's connection and development.
