What do you do when your entire world is blown to smithereens? In the case of Jacob Fisher, that question came quite literally, when he saw his wife and three children killed in an explosion in the heart of Brooklyn. This debut novel by co-authors Joyce Gittlin and Janet B. Fattal, who wrote under the pen name JJ Gesher (a Hebrew pun for those in the know), explores the aftermath of a horrific tragedy.

Jacob, an ultra-Orthodox Jew living in New York, had a bumpy upbringing, with periods of distance from both his family and religion. But he returned to the fold, settled down and had three kids, finding happiness and serenity in family life.
