This “stunningly original” debut novel follows a complex man on a journey of salvation after tragedy (The Jerusalem Post).**
Shortly after Orthodox Jewish Brooklynite Jacob Fischer puts his young family on a bus to visit relatives, the bus explodes in a horrifying act of terrorism. His faith shattered, Jacob flees the comforts of his community and disappears. He lands up in a predominantly black town in rural Alabama, where he meets Rosie, the single mother of a young son. Their developing relationship—along with the rekindling of his love of music—precipitates events that will change both their lives.
