'I have read and immensely enjoyed Paula Rose Michelson’s previous books about Naomi and was delighted to have a chance to read her latest novel. Just like the title states, Naomi’s life feels like it’s beginning anew in this book. Naomi and her husband Chaz seem to have resolved the problem of Naomi’s past that caused a major conflict in their relationship, and Naomi is happy to be starting life with Chaz with a fresh start.
Feeling like a caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly with Chaz’s love, Naomi is excited their remolded casa, she is in love, and looking forward to providing shelter in her house, her Casa de Naomi, as Chaz calls it, to young girls, like she used to be not to so long ago.
Naomi is amazed to discover that all the women who had previously owned her house were Spanish Jews, just like her. She wonders how it was possible 'for three generations of Sephardic women still practicing the Jewish faith in secret to live and work' in that house and community 'without being discovered.'
But it’s not just the women who have (or had) a secret. Soon, Naomi will discover that Chaz, her husband, has a secret himself. And that’s just the beginning of this exciting inspirational story of love, romance, suspense, and spiritual journey.
Paula Rose Michelson writes in an engaging and beautiful style, leading her readers on a fascinating journey together with Chaz and Naomi.
This is an emotional story that many readers will be able to relate to, no matter what faith they belong to. The characters are real, and their struggles are believable and life-like.
A wonderful novel that will inspire you, educate you, and keep you turning the pages until the very last line.' http://amzn.to/1g4WSvF
