I hear the tune of that title in my head as I write it. Anyone else out there so old that you remember it?

Anyway, I’m just so wrapped up in writing “My Father’s House” every chance I get that I haven’t been good at keeping in touch with you, my blog-reading friends. In fact, I haven’t even finished getting my Egypt photos in order.

And now I’m being blatantly self serving, but I want to share some recent praise Mrs. Job has been receiving re “Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses.”

Amazon seems to be doing something new with the reviews, listing the most recent on the right hand side. I like that. I don’t have to ask you to go searching.

So, if you have the time, please take a look at a couple of them copied here. Or, you could read all 38 reviews by going directly to amazon.

I absolutely loved this book and it was a true pleasure to read. The language and style of the writing are so warm and descriptive that the reader feels as if they are there along with Dar and Job and the other inviting characters. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to lose themselves in a beautiful, atmospheric and thought provoking work of historical fiction.

Gustafson has taken the biblical story of Job from the old testament and retold through the point of his wife Dara. I love this the perspective shift and that the story is told through the point of view of A WOMAN NOT A MAN. The unique point of view is worth reading, as is experiencing every stage of the story of Job from beginning to end.
