First off, the cover is beautiful, a real autumn-inspired cover. This is what drew my attention to the book.

This was a somewhat slow read since I’ve yet again stepped outside my preferred genre for this one. This story focuses mostly on religion – specifically Ultra-Orthodox Jewish and Christian religion and what happens when these religions mix. There are strict rules to follow and a lot of things that can never happen.

The pace is quite slow with this story and there are a lot of plots to follow and keep track off (it’s not hard though).

We mainly follow the story from the point of view of Jeff, who leaves his hometown to move to Brooklyn, in search of a better life for himself. He meets Ahron when he arrives in Brooklyn, who helps him get on his feet and invites him into his home and world. We also get a point of view later from Arhon’s life. And we see a different world through Rivka, Ahron’s youngest sister.

The book’s plots in respect to each character seemed, at first, very vague and somewhat disconnected but develop slowly.

The writing in this book is superb! The way scenes are put to words is almost poetic and creates this tangible image of the surroundings. It really sucks you in…


We get a lot of insight to the Jewish religion and touch on the relation between religions. This was really well portrayed…

I would recommend this novel to people who want to learn about religion and want to immerse themselves in these surroundings. Overall, a slow, but well-developed read!



Creativity is my passion, and I have been told that my soul is old, and my body young... Dunno if that is true, but... Anyhoe, gonna start with book reviews, and hauls of the new books I acquire. Maybe if I am better with this blogging thing, I'll expand...

  2. It’s always good to provide insight into Judaism. My father is Jewish and my mother is Catholic. It made for a strange upbringing. I hope it educates others about the richness of the religion!
    Good review! 👍
