I read this book 5 or 6 years ago when I was working on a Kibbutz. We didn't have many books available to us and so everytime a book became free to read there was a real fight for it. I won once!! and this was my prize. It's a book that I've never forgotten and contains lessons and guidelines for all of us regarding relationships. The underlying message is that although we all have an idea of what our "perfect" partner might be, we shouldn't discard those who don't match this, as by doing this we may have missed out on someone who could have been sooo good for us. A quote from the book that I think is so true goes something like this " if our perfect soulmate is someone who meets all of our needs all of the time, and if variety is one of those needs, then no one person can be our perfect soulmate..."- or something very similar to that. It's a book that make you think, makes you look at the world around you, your relationships, friendships etc...and analyse them. I loved it and I hope you will too!
