Publisher's Summary

Newly engaged and unthinkingly self-satisfied, 28-year-old Adam Newman is the prize catch of Temple Fortune, a small, tight-knit Jewish suburb of London. He has been dating Rachel Gilbert since they were both 16 and now, to the relief and happiness of the entire Gilbert family, they are finally to marry.

To Adam, Rachel embodies the highest values of Temple Fortune: she is innocent, conventional, and entirely secure in her community - a place in which everyone still knows the whereabouts of their nursery school classmates. Marrying Rachel will cement Adam’s role in a warm, inclusive family he loves.

But as the vast machinery of the wedding gathers momentum, Adam feels the first faint touches of claustrophobia, and when Rachel’s younger cousin Ellie Schneider moves home from New York, she unsettles Adam more than he’d care to admit.

    "Wow"

    I couldn't quit listening .. I had to know what would happen next. It it me was like seeing inside the mind of a man. A man who had such deep misguided feelings . I got angry at him several times. I also got so angry at the women. I could see some things unfolding the emotions that let their paths but I could not grasp how one lets their emotions go so wild. I wanted their common sense to wake up but alas when love and sex is involved things rarely go as they should ..

    "Don't Waste Your Time"
    Would you try another book from Francesca Segal and/or Rosalyn Landor?

    Probably Not


    Has The Innocents turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. But this book was BORING.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Male voices were awful. Hebrew pronunciation was often dreadful.


    What character would you cut from The Innocents?

    Jasper


    Any additional comments?

    Can't believe this was published.
