The idea of a therapist with knowing intuition whose dream experiences guide her was quite intriguing. What's interesting about this book is the education into Jewish studies.

It begins with the adult Ari who is studying to be a psychologist. Flash back to Ari growing up, her relationship with her family, her first love, and her graduate studies. it appears she is a young girl who has it all. Until she sees her first clinical patient. As she counsels James, Ari finds her own thoughts and feelings mirror his. To learn how to best serve her client, she enters into her own therapy sessions with life changing results.

I wish I could say I liked this book. The premise of therapist/shaman/mystic has great potential. Turns out it was mediocre and disappointing at best. Where are the editing police when you need them?

From the first few chapters of the book it was hard to keep my interest. There were times where I really did enjoy the book but there we also times where it was all I could do to finish reading it. I did love the characters but I found that some places we super boring.

This story is about the coming of age of Ari. The story begins with Ari studying for her Bat Mitzvah with Evan. She finds intellectual fulfillment in the study and later finds romantic fulfillment with Evan. The story ebbs and flows with Ari's experience with the paranormal as well as her inner conflict with wanting to be accepted for herself and her conflict with religion.

I could relate to the way Ari questioned her place as a woman within the patriarchal scene of religion. Her questions were never really answered and in the end, she has to choose the life of a selfless (in the eyes of her religion) or to pursue a self-promoting life.

I really enjoyed the ideas put forth in this book. Unfortunately, the story was told in a very choppy manner and switched character perspective numerous times within a single chapter. The formatting left something to be desired as well. I wish the story would have been more emotionally compelling. The author seemed to play it as safe as the character. I did appreciate the nod towards Jewish tradition and feel I learned some new information.

4 Stars out of 5: a good example of the strengths of literary style which will appeal to fans of slower, more meditative reading experiences. Not as well structured or plotted as it could have been, but executed with technical expertise where scenes, dialogue and characterization are concerned. Readers interested in contemplating the intersection of psychology and religion will find Ms. Glick's novel well developed and rendered with complexity, even where it is lacking in narrative momentum.
