Here’s the second part of my book review excursion. After I learned how important reviews are for authors, I decided to get over myself and write more of them. Original or not, every review counts, right?

I find myself in agreement with most other reviewers of Rochelle’s books. They are page-turners, full of action, with great characters, drama and feeling.

The sequel to ‘Please Say Kaddish For Me’ is no exception.

It’s ‘From Silt and Ashes’ by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
Genre: Historical Fiction
Very brief summary: The story still follows the fate of several Jewish families, but some of them have now moved to the United States. Meanwhile the terror in Czarist Russia continues and affects friends and families that stayed behind. Read more on the Amazon site or visit Rochelle’s author page.

For the longest time I had trouble with reviews and seldom left feedback.  I usually thought, it’s all been said, I could only parrot what other people have already written, and they can do it better than I could.

This may be true, but now I’ve learned that comments really help the writer. Who doesn’t want to know if and how their writing affects the reader? Likewise, I had no idea about what’s involved in publishing books; feedback for books we like is important. I am willing to do better in the future. This is not going to turn into a book blogger site, but the occasional review will show up. And I urge you, dear readers, to do the same. When you find an author you like, please help to spread the word by leaving reviews and comments.
 I’ll start with a book (the first of a series) I wanted to read for some time, and now finally did.
It’s ‘Please Say Kaddish For Me’ by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
Genre: Historical Fiction
Very brief summary: The story follows the fate of several Jewish families in Czarist Russia. Despite cruelty, terror and heartache, love and joy can’t be suppressed. Read more on the Amazon site or visit Rochelle’s author page.
