I was a son to my father...
And he taught me and said to me...
"Let your heart hold fast my words..."
Ok, this is on my top 10 list for
most intriguing books ever read. A good book should
teach. The Chosen teaches on so many levels. I questioned my
own convictions, my understanding of true love and parenting.
Set in the 1940's, Brooklyn,
New York, two teenage Jewish boys, Danny and Reuven find commonality
among a conflict of family ideologies.
The underlying message for me--
There will always be opposition in following a less traveled path. There are some who will never understand
you and I for
our religion, politics, important works etc. Sometimes even those
we love. Get on with what you must do.
The sequel to this one, The Promise,
is quite different, but there are new lessons to learn. Share
