Description

An Unorthodox Match is a powerful and moving novel of faith, love, and acceptance, from author Naomi Ragen, the international bestselling author of The Devil in Jerusalem.

California girl Lola has her life all set up: business degree, handsome fiancé, fast track career, when suddenly, without warning, everything tragically implodes. After years fruitlessly searching for love, marriage, and children, she decides to take the radical step of seeking spirituality and meaning far outside the parameters of modern life in the insular, ultraorthodox enclave of Boro Park, Brooklyn. There, fate brings her to the dysfunctional home of newly-widowed Jacob, a devout Torah scholar, whose life is also in turmoil, and whose small children are aching for the kindness of a womanly touch.

While her mother direly predicts she is ruining her life, enslaving herself to a community that is a misogynistic religious cult, Lola’s heart tells her something far more complicated. But it is the shocking and unexpected messages of her new community itself which will finally force her into a deeper understanding of the real choices she now faces and which will ultimately decide her fate.

display_descriptionA powerful and moving novel of faith, love, and acceptance, from the international bestselling author of The Devil in Jerusalem. Yaakov is a man of God, a father, a Talmud scholar, and a widower. After failing to save his wife's life, he is struggling both financially and spiritually. Lola is a woman from the secular world who has suffered terrible tragedy and hardship in her life. To find her place she has turned to God and the Orthodox community in Brooklyn. She now goes by the name of Leah. Yaakov needs help to keep his home and his children in order; Leah needs a purpose and a place in the Orthodox community. They both need a partner in life, a perfect match. But the instant chemistry they share is fraught with drama and prohibition. Forces are against them while necessity pushes them together. And then there is the possibility - will love win, or won't it?
