A Light read? Maybe not!
"The Tenth Song" by Naomi Ragen Is a story about how a Jewish family deals with a crisis of significant magnitude. On the surface, the book was okay. The plot was interesting and believable - and there was enough pathos to hold my interest. I had to find out how it all came out, but it seemed to be, what I call, a "light" read. What surprised me was where the book took me! The depth that developed as the story progressed caught me off guard and I found Ragen's perspective of even more interest. She conveyed great deal of wisdom and insight into interpersonal dynamics and the strength of spirituality in one's life.
It turned out to be a thought provoking and insightful read. There is within this story a message of hope, revealing the resilience of the human spirit when facing adversity. It is the first of Ragen's books I have read – it won’t be the last!
