A Remarkable Kindness

 A Remarkable Kindness was the kind of novel that touches you deeply. I have always been drawn to Israel and its rich history, so I was not at all surprised to be drawn into the story of Rachel, Lauren, Emily and Aviva. Faced with their own personal challenges, this book tells the stories of their lives and what brought these four Jewish American to this place.
I was quite intrigued by the concept of a burial circle as it was not something I had previously heard about yet I found utterly compelling. I found the idea very touching and something that I felt was a great central focus of the story with the individual stories revolving around it.
This book was one that I can definitely recommend to anyone who loves a good story with a lot of emotion. It was a heartfelt and great story that was very easy to read.
