"Extraordinary . . . No one but Chaim Potok could have written this strangely sweet, compelling, and deeply felt novel."--The Cleveland Plain Dealer "A masterwork."--Newsday "Rivals anything Chaim Potok has ever produced. It is a book written with passion about passion. You're not likely to read anything better this year."--The Detroit News "Fascinating."--The Washington Post Book World "Very moving."--The Philadelphia Inquirer
