“Simply fascinating. :)). I don’t usually write book reviews. With I Hate to Say Goodbye, by Ruti Yudovich, I felt that I had to share my experience. This book is so authentically well written.  A rich story with such deep emotional and sweet in the broad scope of life. It is well written, very vividly that more than once, I felt as if I was part of it, going through with her through the wild ride of emotional levels, go all out helping her and the characters and relive my childhood. Beautifully and uniquely detailed. It is sooo easy to read and a great page-turner. In fact, I was so involved in it that I didn’t want it to finish! Great plot with an amazing free spirit. Looking forward to her next one. Enjoy it. :))”. O. M. L.

“Rimi is saucy, sweet, sensitive, but also a fighter for what she wants and thinks is right. Some of the stories are edged with mysticism, making the narrator’s voice like no other. One meets characters and scenes unique to Israel in the fifties and early sixties. It is a rich compilation of stories with the through-line; a girl’s search for life’s truths apart from circumstance and place. A wonderful read! L.L.

“Young Rimi is bright and strong, a winner…she overcomes barriers by finding solutions during ‘Moments of Deepness’ which I found inspiring. A fun and moving read for anyone who seeks a unique personal account about a special child growing up in Israel at that special time of its inception.”  O.V.

“Loved the book ‘I hate to Say Goodbye’… I had a hard time putting it down and an even harder time saying goodbye to the tale when I finished. I found the story entertaining and inspiring. Its a spellbinding account of the Rimi’s courageous personal journey growing up in the young state of Israel both Rimi and Israel striving to survive…Rimi in a partially dysfunctional, but loving family surrounded by neighbors, friends, and classmates, and Israel in a backdrop of a looming war with the Arab enemy that surrounds it.” C.N
