A gripping emotional page turner - how falling in love can be the hardest thing you'll ever do.
1969 - David Kaisman stared down at the shrouded figure wrapped in a prayer shawl. Smoldering anger overwhelmed any feelings of remorse. Brought up in the Orthodox Jewish community by an authoritarian father, his life was tightly governed by rules and strictures. Desperate to break free he takes a job at an advertising agency owned by a gentile. But the guilt of disappointing his father and the disapproval of the close-knit community are exacting a toll on his psyche.
Jorie-Anne Fielding is having a bad break-up. The nightclub scene, the partying and her handsome cheating boyfriend are wearing her down. When Jorie and David are introduced at the agency she's intrigued by his dark good looks, but his reserved and aloof personality cause open animosity between them. One evening, working late, David begins to talk about his life, revealing an intriguing new world to Jorie and igniting sparks of long suppressed emotions within himself.
As they grow closer, David's burgeoning new life is about to be turned upside down. The person he idolized has kept a dark and shameful secret. And now, Jorie is asking David to make a choice which will ultimately decide their fate.
