  1. A marvelous tapestry that will keep readers enthralled until the last page.
    Chavi Weintraub is 35, intelligent, gainfully employed, financially independent, and single. However, she believes that the last status may be about to change. So, for that matter, does 32-year-old Moishe Shapiro, who has purchased a magnificent ring. However, when the couple meets, the young man makes a condition for their engagement—one that shocks and disturbs Chavi. So the confused young woman, instead of finally becoming the kallah and wife she longs to be, returns home to a night of weeping.

    Leah Kanowitz is ecstatic. After giving birth to four daughters, she and her husband Shulem are the new parents of a baby boy. His mommy believes he is perfect, but his tatty—and his doctor—notice that something is not right with the newborn. After a frightening crisis, the baby is in a coma, and no one is sure if he will ever awaken.

    Hudis Shapiro is convinced that she knows what is best for herself and her children. However, when her domineering personality threatens not only her children’s futures but her own home life, it becomes evident that someone must take a stand. But will anyone have the courage to do so?

    Dr. Mark Sampson is a gifted and prestigious physician. His talent in the medical field is matched only by his certainty that modern medicine provides all the answers. An encounter with the father of one of his patients demonstrates that there is another way of thinking and perceiving the world around him.

    Miriam Luxenberg deftly weaves together the experiences of these diverse individuals into a marvelous tapestry. As their paths intertwine, each gains insights into the others and themselves. When a series of crises brings everything to a head, the lives of all those involved are forever changed. This is a satisfying novel whose twists and turns (and cliffhanger chapter endings) will keep readers turning the pages.
