The Gift of Asher Lev

Chaim Potok

955890

Potok delivers another masterpiece in this sequel to his My Name is Asher Lev. Twenty years have past since the first book, and Asher Lev has become a world-famous artist, living in France with his wife and two children. His world is turned upside down when he returns to the world of his youth to honor his uncle who has died. Drawn more and more into the world he thought he had left behind, he is forced into a life-changing decision by the approaching death of the rabbi who leads the sect he was born into.

I could not put this book down. I set aside all my other reading to finish this novel and follow it to its heart-wrenching climax.
