“Bezalel comes to life on these pages: one can feel the struggles and fears of a slave, a Jew, a young man and more importantly, one can rejoicing at the omniscient hand of God working not only in this fictions recounting of his life but also in our own every day trials! This underlying theme made me want to shout from the first chapter! Kudos to Carole Towriss – I look forward to the next novel! ”
