This book proves that Jewish Orthodox writers can get published by mainstream publishers without badmouthing the JO community or fitting into a "niche" (such as mystery). And it's a marvelous book besides! :)

For every "older single" in the JO community, and for anyone who wants to know what that can be like. Should be required reading for certain matchmakers of my acquaintance. ;)

I wanted a bit more closure on some of the minor plots, which is why I deducted half a star. Other than that, an absolutely remarkable debut book! :D

Wonderful characters who grow and change, who interact with one another in unexpected ways, all set against a wonderful background -- Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) through the eyes of an author who really knows and loves it.
