Wishlist Wednesday: Of Winter's Cost by Geoff Akers

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper. As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.

Of Winter's Cost by Geoff Akers
Sam wants to follow the path ordained by his father and his fellow Jewish settlers living on the dangerous West Bank, but is haunted by his grandfather's tales from the Holocaust and disturbed by the vicious tactics employed by his comrades against their Arab neighbours. He soon comes to realise that the victims of anti-Semitism have become the victimisers in an increasingly bitter struggle for land. Of Winter's Cost launches an uncompromising attack on all forms of racism whether instigated by the Nazis during the Second World War or by Jewish fundamentalists on the West bank. The heroes are a survivor of the Holocaust, who finds it in his heart to forgive the enemies of his people, and a young man struggling to discover where his true loyalties lie.

I saw the synopsis for this book a while ago and it would not stop hunting me. I am curious how this sensitive subject has been approached and what kind of feeling the story will throw at me.
