The veil of hypocrisy has been ripped apart, when she was accused of having committed adultery, considered by her community as the most unpardonable sin. Perhaps, you think that this novel is – like many others – a common history of extramarital love. You are wrong, because the author of the book has been able to offer seemingly ordinary human affairs, but by putting them in a double context special, original and overwhelming.
Browsing through the pages written by Naom Ragen, you too will discover the existential labyrinth involving three young sisters in Israel.

I hope, when thou hast known the story of the sisters Reich, that even your mind, listen to your heart. Dvora, Chaya Leah and Dina, as if they were different shades of the same color will gradually enter into you, page after page, telling you the extraordinary nature of a special place – Jerusalem – along with falling in love wonder that one feels. You can observe your life with wonder, as if it were similar to a small tapestry woven with the threads of feelings and emotions. Inside, you’ll discover the unlikely shapes and colors impossible that only love can create: sun-ripened peaches, the dense black of the night, gold Redeemer in the morning. Interweaving, is your life.
