This chapter describes no only Frieden’s courtship and eventual marriage to his second wife, Ray Savage, but also tells of his life-altering decision to leave the United States and take his family on aliya to the Land of Israel. In the story of Frieden’s courtship Frieden makes it clear that in looking for a new wife, he was searching for a mate as well as someone who would be a mother to his daughters. His feelings of affection for his wife Ray are given free reign in the text. By contrast, Frieden tells of his decision to immigrate to the Land of Israel more briefly and less emotionally, perhaps because his Zionist consciousness was so engrained in his psyche by the time he penned his memoir that he felt no need to spell out how and why he had resolved to make aliya.
