I received "The Rabbi’s Wife, the Bishop’s Wife" by David Jacobson Chayuta Deutsch to review on my blog!
"The Rabbi’s Wife, The Bishop’s Wife" is an inspiring
story filled with drama and historical facts.
Joana Helvi is a woman that willing to give up everything for her faith. This story takes place in 1391. She is the mother of five kids. She is married to the Rabbi of Burgos. She is also from a very wealthy and respected family.
Her family joins the Catholic church. She is left behind and hope they will return to her.
Based on the true story of Joana Halevi, The Rabbi’s Wife, the Bishop’s Wife addresses human behavior and condition: true and false alliances, betrayal and loyalty, destruction and redemption.
I highly recommend this book!
