THE PROMISE by Chaim Potok
I will refer back to my high school English class and a required reading list. From this wonderful list, I discovered Chaim Potok. I read THE CHOSEN first and then THE PROMISE.
Both books opened my eyes to a world far different than my own and helped me understand that there was more to the world than my rural culture and Baptist religion. Exciting!
First Line: The county fair was Rachel’s idea.
End Line: Clouds, he said.
THE CHOSEN by Chaim Potok
First Line: For the first fifteen years of our lives, Danny and I lived within five blocks of each other and neither of us new the other’s existence.
Last Line: Then he turned into Lee Avenue and was gone.
And this my friends is what reading is supposed to do. Open our eyes.
Love this author. Love these books.
