You cooked all the meals for all three sets of three-day Yamim Tovim, and now your clothes smell so strongly of fried onions, you wonder if people get hungry when you walk past.
You entertained the kids throughout the long days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur—by now, you are an expert at Guess Who? (you know to ask about the size of the nose to figure out if the mystery person is Peter or Paul) and Aleph-Beis Match-Ups (you know that the card with the back that’s peeling in the bottom-left corner is a vav—shh, don’t tell anyone else!).
And now it’s Sukkos, and while the men fret over how to keep their aravos from getting wilted, all you want to do is collapse on the couch with a good book as your treat.
But you don’t want just any good book. I mean, you worked hard! You should get one of the very best books out there on the market! That’s what you deserve! Right?
So, here it is, folks: a brand-new book from bestselling author Etka Gitel Schwartz. Yup, you heard right. The famous Binah writer, whose historical novels have been known to keep readers up till four in the morning…she’s back with a new book this season, called Caravan.
Ahh…say no more…I’m already sold…
Yes, yes, we know that, but there’s even more to it: it’s a short story book, so you don’t have to worry about being in the middle of a massively thick novel right when your husband is calling you to the sukkah for Kiddush (with our apologies to Full Harvest—which is an excellent book, too, of course…just not exactly on the thin side). And each of the short stories in Caravan is so magnificently written, and full of such tochen, and so gripping…that you will get all the “treat” that you want and need, plus more, in this book.
So go ahead and indulge. Like we said, you deserve it. Carvan—a bestselling author providing quality literature to her readers.
