PALM BEACH, Fla. – In her literary debut titled “The Bus to Jerusalem” (published by Xlibris), Shelly Rybak-Pearson blends fact and fiction to tell a riveting story of hope, love and the drama and desolation of the Lithuanian Holocaust. Pearson has recently launched a new marketing campaign to promote her book recently published in 2015.

“The Bus to Jerusalem” tells a mystical love fantasy story that draws influence from the Kabbalistic concept of the twin soul. Based on true events that happened to the author’s parents, it traces the couple’s first meeting in pre-World War II Europe and charts their journey through Latin American and the United States.

An evocative and compelling narrator, Pearson combines historical events with classic concepts of Jewish mysticism to recreate her parents’ story, their spiritual relationships and the events surrounding her mother’s eventual passing.

Suffused with the zeitgeist of the Second World War, “The Bus to Jerusalem” is an unforgettable tale that captures the fears, hopes, struggles and triumphs of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary times.
