A sweeping historical novel traces the life of Rina, from her childhood as an impoverished young Jewish girl in the new country of Israel, to her married life in a luxury apartment in Barcelona, to the longing for her home country that makes her risk everything to move back.

HARPERCOLL
An international bestseller and publishing phenomenon, Every House Needs a Balcony—dubbed the “Israeli Kite Runner” by The Bookseller—is the story of one family, one home, and the surprising arc of one woman’s life, from the poverty of her youth, to the glowing love and painful losses of her adult years. If you enjoy the novels of Dalia Sofer (The Septembers of Shiraz), Amos Oz (My Michael, A Tale of Love and Darkness), and A.B. Yehoshua (Mr Mani), you’ll find much to love in Rina Frank’s beautiful and bittersweet Every House Needs a Balcony.
