Winegarden by Anthony Ferner
This was a sweet little novella about a Jewish professor of philosophy. We are given a glimpse into Jacob Winegarden's life through various stages of his life although not in any chronological order.
Jacob questions everything and has a hard time making up his mind about pretty much everything because of that. He doesn't believe in God, but doesn't not believe in him either. I found it a little sad that he never seems to be sure of anything. For me it was interesting peeking into a Jewish life as I've not had the opportunity to know any Jewish people!
I was offered a copy of this book for review and was going to pass on it until I read Ali's review over at Heavenali. I don't think I cared for it as much as she did. Ali did a lovely review and you should really stop by and read it!
