From Communism to Orthodox-Judaism
am 2. März 2000
I enjoyed reading Davita's Harp. I found it very intriguing that Potok managed to interweave Communism, Picasso the Spanish Civil War and the warmth of Orthodox Judaism. However, I did not think it realistic that Anne, who had always despised Orthodox Judaism, suddenly turned to it after her husband died. I also thought it was interesting that Davita is the first, and until now the only, female protagonist in Potok's oeuvre. She is also the only one who is brought up by non religious parents, but turns to Orthodoxy on her own account. Besides all this I found it a warm and captivating novel that makes you think.
