Mandel JCC Festival of Books - Naomi Ragen
Book Title: The Tenth Song
In her most recent novel, The Tenth Song, Abigail Samuels has no reason to feel anything but joy on the morning her life falls apart. A successful Jewish American woman, she is married to a well known accountant and is in the middle of planning her daughter Kayla's wedding. Kayla, too, wakes up that morning with the world in the palm of her hand. Having lived the charmed life of a well loved child from a happy family, she is bright, pretty, a Harvard law student who has never really questioned the path she found herself on. With a shocking suddenness, all is smashed to pieces in ways they could never have dreamed. A heartbroken Kayla runs away to a desert commune run by a charismatic mystic; Abigail rushes to save her, only to find that there is nothing more whole then a broken heart.
Naomi Regan is the author of seven novels, including several international bestsellers. An American, she has lived in Jerusalem for the past thirty nine years and was recently voted one of the three most popular authors in Israel.
