Jonah Jacobstein is a lucky man: young, healthy and handsome, he has two beautiful women ready to spend the rest of their lives with him, and an enormously successful legal career that gets more promising by the minute. A bizarre, unexpected biblical vision at a party one night will change that forever. Hard as he tries to forget it, this upsetting sign is only the first of many Jonah will see, and before long his life is unrecognizable. Though this perhaps divine intervention will be responsible for more than one irreversible loss in Jonah's life, it will also cross his path with that of Judith Bulbrook, an intense, breathtakingly intelligent woman who's no stranger to loss herself. In this brilliantly conceived retelling of The Book of Jonah, Feldman examines the way we live now, and the unexpected places and people we look to for salvation and the chance to start anew -- Provided by publisher.
