I’m excited to share with you the latest Amazon US review of Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses. Of course, I would love it if one of these days the book would catch on and I’d see something other than a flat line in the report of sales. But it’s good for the soul to know that someone else has appreciated it. And I certainly am made happy by Kerstin Volbrecht’s kind words.

This is a beautiful book about love, friendship (a different manifestation of love), spiritual and personal growth, told by means of the story of Dara and Job. The book starts with Dara’s childhood in a nomad tribe, where she is raised with the values of respect, self-consciousness and the acknowledgement of the Other. The story is told as if one is reading a diary of her life, including her reflections about the occurring events and about how things just are.
Although I’m not inclined to the bible or any religion, I take the religious aspects as metaphors and lessons that are to learn.
The characters are described in a very profound manner, making it easy to get familiar with them and understand their reactions and thinking patterns. The way the book is written is very clear and precise.”

I’ve been having so many delays since my monitor went back on me and I had problems getting, installing, and working my new one. My writing – even my e-mailing and my walking a half-hour each day– is way behind.
But I do have time to share this latest review of “Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses” posted on amazon on December 4.
“Wow! What a great book! From the title, I was a little apprehensive because it didn’t seem to describe a book I’d like to read. The title came together later and was very appropriate. I was captivated from the beginning, I loved the main character Dar. She was strong and aware and thoughtful and faithful as well as a good friend, wife and mother. I love the story of Job and this story was a nice addition to the things about Job I already knew. I would have liked to know more about Job and Dar’s children, their personalities and interests.
I think Mona did a great job in capturing the historical element of the time period, keeping the reader wanting more and building relationships with characters. I would read more from this author!
