Take a listen: Beautiful and Haunting

    "Beautiful and Haunting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
    Absolutely! The writing is beautiful, the story compelling, and the narration excellent
    (and perfectly suited to the tone of the book)

    What did you like best about this story?
    The author's use of language is just incredible. Her prose paints a picture that it's easy
    to be drawn into (it's no surprise that the author is a visual artist as well).

    Which scene was your favorite?
    I enjoyed the opening chapter, when Yankel makes and describes the lentil stew that he
    will use to buy his brother's birthright.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
    A Timeless Story of Greed and Betrayal

    Any additional comments?
    I was really overwhelmed by the quality of the writing, and really impressed by how
    well the narration complemented it. This really is a case where the whole becomes
    greater than the sum of two already excellent parts.
