Caution: This book contains secrets. Secrets that may be dangerous to friendship. To shidduchim. And to lovely facades built with so much care.
A.J. and Devora have the perfect friendship, built on shared experiences, laughter, and just plain liking each other. And one more thing - years ago, A.J.'s husband saved the life of Devora's beloved son. If that doesn't make a bond, what does?
Now, as their children reach the age of shidduchim, those unbreakable bonds are beginning to fray — cut, thread by thread, by secrets and betrayals. And as a friendship unravels, the happiness, and, indeed, the fate of two generations hangs in the balance.
Readers love Yael Mermelstein's sensitive portrayals of today's observant women - their issues, their strengths, their challenges. Dual Secrets is Yael Mermelstein at her best - exquisitely written, combining an intriguing story, vivid characters, humor, pathos and a deep understanding of what makes us who we are.
