Eighteen-year-old Hannah Hagen, an outgoing and rebellious gentile girl growing up in the shadow of her father’s terminal illness, meets 17-year-old Uri Geller, a Modern Orthodox Jewish boy, in unlikely circumstances in the late 1990s. Their meeting brings Hannah out of an abusive relationship, and into a spiritual and religious transformation, and life in a community that gives her connection and meaning.
Spanning three decades and two continents, Uri Full of Light is a story of conversion, redemption, and two inseparable lovers during the turmoil and aftermath of Israel’s Second Intifada.
At the height of the suicide bombings in Israel in the early 2000’s, Uri and Hannah must navigate through the complexities of faith, death, and an unlikely turn of events. Their story is a testament to the strength of the human spirit in unthinkable tragedy, and the remarkable capacity to forgive.
