This is the second novel that I have read by Chaim Potok, and again, it is one of the best novels I have read in quite some time. The reader is immediately drawn into the lives of the Lev family. Potok's writing is emotional, and I felt instantly connected with the main character, Asher. The reader can easily sense his frustrations and pain. One of my favorite aspects of the novel was that the main character's life centered around art. Throughout the whole novel, I wanted him to triumph in this area. I also connected with Asher's struggle between his religion and his passion. It was truly a moving novel, and I am ready to read more of Potok's work.
