"This is the third book I have read and reviewed in the captivating "Casa de Naomi: The House of Blessing" series and it certainly won't be the last if there are more novels to come by talented Author Paula Rose Michelson. I felt like I was visiting some very old and ear friends as I was quickly drawn into their intriguing lives yet again.
The couple have reaffirmed their marriage vows and are about to resume where they left off after their unfortunate and painful separation. Chaz is consumed with guilt and remorse because of the unkind way he treated Naomi when he discovered her faith. With a somewhat clearer understanding of not only her heritage but his as well, they both set their minds to starting over and beginning anew in their yet to be consummated marriage. As to be expected, they are truly blessed with the love they have for each other and now they must learn to cherish, respect, and be totally honest with one another as the grow that love.
Chaz has a surprise for Naomi...a beautiful hand carved sign hung above the entrance to the recently remodeled casa. Naomi prefers that it be placed above the former grandmother's home behind the the main house. When Tío Luis comes over to make the changes, he begins to share the origins of the casa, when in the early 1900's Vieda came to live in Spanish Harlem with her papa. Naomi thinks he has misspelled Tía Veida's name...however, she soon discovers otherwise.
This couple is determine to share..."the unique gift of being able to come together, fully known and still be loved. Yet, there are many secrets to be uncovered. When Teresa gives Vieda's journal to Naomi to assist her in helping Chaz better understand his heritage, Naomi gets a much better understanding of Vieda. The more she reads, the more she is captivated and intrigued by her personal story. Strange things begin to happen to her...it is as if Vieda is now communicating directly to her. Naomi senses her presence and can mysteriously play the piano like she has never played it before. Although this concept is beyond Naomi's comprehension, she knows she must follow through with the reading of Vied'a's journal in order to have closure not only for Vieda but for her Chaz as well.
"Beginning Anew" is another incredible romantic novel in this fictional series penned by gifted author, Paula Rose Michelson. I could not put it down as I was so captivated by the story line with its rare combination of fact...the history of the persecution of the hidden Jews and fiction...the enticing love between Chaz and Naomi whereby they have the opportunity to discover "echad" in the deep and abiding love found in a God-centered marriage.

This author truly demonstrates her faith in her own words as she states...
This author truly demonstrates her faith in her own words as she states..."God is faithful! Whatever he has called you to do, when you step out in faith as I did, God will meet and together you will become more than a conqueror!" Her books testify to this belief and her personal relationship with Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). A rare gem indeed!
