Deborah and Daniel are orthodox Jewish children of a Rabbi, and each of them were brought up for a specific purpose– the perfect Jewish wife, and the perfect Rabbi.
Actually read Caputo’s same title first cuz I didn’t notice the author’s name. Daniel’s life was a sum of random events happening out of thin air, awesome encounters and conversations, especially the professor who changed his life, which also showed Segal’s love for human psychology, which was even evident in Doctors. It is wiaary but only that, the lives of Daniel, Deborah and especially Timothy advance in leaps and bounds; without any depth.
And from that moment their lives were fated to be forever entwined. What follows is through many decades, the life of all three characters, affected by their choices and its effect on their faith.

Dec 13, Ayesha Rahman rated it it was amazing. It was an enlightening read, with regards to the Jewish culture and history, and it had a segla of insights into Christianity. May 05, Dee rated it liked it Shelves: Maybe, it was too predictable most of the times, or maybe just when a thought process was leading to something monumental, it suddenly lost all steam or maybe Ercih was expecting something entirely different.
And into world’s the patriarch would never dare imagine. And destined to break his father’s heart.
Hassan Warraich rated it it was ok Jan 05, I also liked the presentation of how Deborah was able to overcome the prejudices of her father and her Orthodox Jewish community to grow into her own person and do what she wanted, and stand on her own as a mature woman. This is fiction, not literary fiction. Yes, it is a little predictable, and maybe Daniel should have had a bit more limelight, but Segal’s storytelling is marvelous and smooth.
