I have been mesmerized by the story of Job, and how he could not hate God for his trials. I have several books that have dealt with Job - and this is richer than all of them: it takes me there. Dara, Job's wife, becomes somebody I feel I have known always. Mona also has a superb ability to describe smells, colors, spices, food, clothes, animals, family life from Job's time on Earth - and it feels like a deep privilege to be able to read this book and feel myself taking part in that time and life - in my view, the book does it better than any movie could do. Mona has this writer-voice that is dependable all the way through
It is also deeply moving to read how it is possible to turn away from a Goddess that has served you your whole life (or so you think) and instead serve the Voice that talks with fury through a sandstorm.
This short quote may stay for me for the rest of my life:
"...my first lesson in doing something useful when you are upset."
I always wondered how Job's wife reacted to all the trials - including losing all her children and servants. It feels like a privilege to be taken into that grief via Mona's seer-abilities. I wept deeply several times - and for me, that's the mark of an excellent writer.
