Told as the firsthand experience of a young Ethiopian Jewish girl, The Return is a . . . fictional account of the escape and flight of the Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 1984-85. Desta, an orphaned adolescent, lives in a remote, impoverished mountain village. These black Jews are beset by other Ethiopians who call them 'falasha' (stranger) and 'buda' (evil eye), and hate and fear them. The Communist Government pressures them to abandon their religion, marauding rebel bands rob and attack the Jewish villagers and forcibly recruit the young men. Nevertheless, they are forbidden to migrate. Desta, her sister and brother, along with {others} . . . start the illegal and dangerous pilgrimage to the Sudan. From there, they have been promised, they will be flown to Israel.
