The Book of Names by Jill Gregory and Karen Tintori
This Book was chosen by my book club for our March read. First thing I picked up on was this book is written in a Davinchi Code style (I don’t believe it to be as controversial) but had the same fast paced theme and it all stemmed around a group called the Lamed Vovniks (who I had never heard of).
I loved that the book was written by two women, best friends in fact. They knew about the legend of the Lamed Vovniks and wanted to write a story around them. After years of research and putting this idea onthe back burner – it finally came to be.
The book was written well and read well. I liked the pace and our book club review was very interesting as we discussed Biblical references, and who in todays world would classify as this fiction book said, as a lamed vovnik.
