I am involved in reading The Source, a novel by James Michener. It is my third reading.
I read it decades ago, the first time, right after its publication, and read it a second time about twenty years ago. I am reading it for a book club. I love this novel so much, for varied reasons. The archeological aspect is so intriguing and fascinating. The kibbutz story line, is also, and the characters that wind their way through that lifestyle.
I love the archeology digs, within the story and how each time period is ascertained by the characters to be correct and documented. I enjoy reading about the characters within a specific period of time, their daily lives, their social aspects and their mindsets and growth.
Well, onward I go, synagogue calls me in an hour.
Shabbat Shalom! For those who do not celebrate, have a great weekend.
