The "Books Of Rachel" was a good book. It followed the largest diamond made for the first Rachel, all the way to the 1960s. God had his hand in all of their lives. I enjoyed the book.

For five hundred years, there has always been a Rachel. For, after each Rachel's death, the first daughter born to the family is given the name of Rachel and a heritage of faith and courage as precious as the family diamond. This is the story of those Rachels - a saga sweeping from the torture chambers of the Spanish Inquisition to the imfamous pleasure palaces of Venice... from the elegant salons of 18th century Germany to the horrors of the Holocaust... from the mighty drama of the birth of a Jewish homeland in Isreal to the hopes and hardships of America.

Very interesting novel. I loved the transition between centuries as the book followed the Cuheno family line. Really cool story.

I have this book, though I'm not the one offering it here - this is a great book and I'm keeping mine!! This story is about 500 years of a family line, each generation having a Rachel. There is another as well you should consider - The Lives of Rachel which is 1,000 years. It's simply excellent!!

The Books of Rachel is a fictional microcosm of 500 years of Jewish history. Since the 15th century, in the Cuheno family, the first daughter born to the family is given the name Rachel and a heritage of faith and courage as precious as the family diamond. A saga sweeping from the Spanish Inquisition to the birth of a Jewish homeland.
