Chaz is still furious over Naomi’s betrayal. How could she shame him like this? After visiting his parents he is faced with a secret that his parents have kept from him for years. Chaz is sent away to visit his Uncle in Mexico to learn more about this family secret.
The author wrote a scene between Chaz and his Uncle that is very powerful. I could feel the electricity flowing back and forth. How I wish I was there witnessing what was happening.
Is there any possible chance for Chaz and Naomi to live as man and wife again? Will all the secrets come out and be dealt with? Can there be forgiveness?
Casa de Naomi The House of Blessing Book 2 is a very good read. I love how the Author forces us to examine oneself. Are we hiding secrets that keep us from fully enjoying a relationship with The Messiah and others?
This is a book you do not want to pass up! I can’t wait until Book 3 is published.
Thank you Paula Rose Michelson for your powerful God inspiring books.

"Yes, because of what the world thinks about us, I was never able to follow my heart ... No, I am saying it wrong. I was never taught to listen to my heart," Naomi confesses in Paula Rose Michelson's novel, "Casa de Naomi - The House of Blessing."
In this second of the Casa Saga series, this paperback tome is two hundred and forty-nine pages and targeted toward young mature adults and older, especially Christian Jews or those brought up in the Spanish-American culture. Although it appears the book has not been professionally edited due to errors, there is no profanity, uncomfortable sex scenes or extreme violence. This reader wishes all pronouns related to God were capitalized for reverence.
A Messianic Jew, author Michelson draws the reader by initially starting the book with historical notes that Christopher Columbus transported to America many Jews who were fleeing Spain to avoid the Inquisition due to the Degree of Alhambra which stated that if a Jew was on Spanish soil at the stroke of midnight on March 31, 1492 and was not baptized into the Catholic faith, he or she would put to death.
Having not read the prior first book, one can easily understand that it is now centuries later, yet the Jewish people continued to hide their true lineage down through the years to avoid persecution as they blend into America's culture, especially those from a Spanish background who took the Catholic oath yet still believed in Jewish traditions and beliefs.
It has been fifteen years living in America and determined Naomi has fallen in love and married Chaz, a wealthy Spanish American. Always acting invisible and unable to trust others, when she admits she is of Jewish nationality, she is shunned by her husband. To avoid confrontation with him, she flees with a friend for a camping trip, only to befriend the motherly Gamma Ruth where the young woman is force to deal with her true identity. Meanwhile, Chaz has issues of his own, both professionally and personally as he is challenged by his bigotry and a family that wants him to be happy.
Knowing both Old and New Testament doctrine about the Messiah and Jesus' relationship between Jew and Christian, Michelson does a thorough job blending Bible verses into the story line. Although the characters' dialogues are sometimes stiff and predictable, the writer explains how God does not go where He is not invited and all are accepted and loved unconditionally by Him.
