‘Honeymooning in the Holy Land’ By Norbert F. Markiewicz

This story is about an Israeli born young man returning to his homeland with his new bride, a Jewish photojournalist. It takes place within a day of Jerusalem becoming the new capital. Much of the plot conflict centers on the bride’s zealousness to capture the Israelis and Palestinians ready to rumble. The scenes show the couple’s conflicting personalities and local culture. I am submitting this in the Historic rather than Romance Category, for the couple are already married.
