4.0 out of 5 stars A perceptive story of struggle, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Job (Paperback)
I am only part way through this book, but I am surprised by just how much I am enjoying it. Written in a style reminiscent of a fable or moral tale, it gradually engages the reader in the dynamics of Mendel Singer's family. He and his wife Deborah are from the outset entirely dedicated to nuturing and protecting their children but face many challenges and uncertainties as their traditional family structure changes, and decisions must be taken on a new and possibly risky direction for their future lives. Originally published in 1930, this perceptive perspective on Jewish family life is full of commitment to the values of loyalty and endeavour, while addressing major issues of poverty and hardship, and the impact on faith and hope.
