A powerful and moving novel of faith, love, and acceptance, from the international bestselling author of The Devil in Jerusalem.
Yaakov is a man of God, a father, a Talmud scholar, and a widower. After failing to save his wife’s life, he is struggling both financially and spiritually.
Lola is a woman from the secular world who has suffered terrible tragedy and hardship in her life. To find her place she has turned to God and the Orthodox community in Brooklyn. She now goes by the name of Leah.
Yaakov needs help to keep his home and his children in order; Leah needs a purpose and a place in the Orthodox community. They both need a partner in life, a perfect match. But the instant chemistry they share is fraught with drama and prohibition. Forces are against them while necessity pushes them together. And then there is the possibility – will love win, or won’t it?
