Personally, I feel that Talia’s decision to keep her identity a secret and not add a postscript to the book is the saddest thing of all. We have no idea if Dov had a true positive influence on her. It seems that she has rejected everything he stood for. I hope I’m wrong.
I hope this has gotten you curious and highly recommend that you read the book. It should be required reading by Jews of all ages, here in Israel and abroad. It is perfect for book clubs and youth groups.
