Preface - Lisa Gottlieb

"This is an 'impossible' novel, in the sense that Lisa Gottlieb has managed to achieve something quite amazing.  At its deepest level, this novel is a microcosm of the human search for meaning and stability in an unstable world — the search for Christ in the midst of 'ordinary' lives.  Gottlieb shows us ourselves, and does so with honesty, affection, irony and wit. This is the work of a very, very gifted writer." - Michael O'Brien  Read more...

Rachoff – A true story - Karl Joseph Friedrich
