    1. Five Rachel's, from the same ancesters,down through history:Judea, 168BCRome, 63BCLondon, 488ADNicomedia(Turkey), 756 ADMainz,1096ADMany gem scholars agree that the tradition of birthstones arose from the Breastplate of Aaron: a ceremonial religious garment set with twelve gemstones that represented the twelve tribes of Israel and also corresponded with the twelve signs of the zodiac and the twelve months of the year. "It was square -- a span [22 centimeters] long and a span wide -- and folded d [...]

    2. 3 days and nights of complete waste!!!!!How I read through the whole book I don't know. I was expecting something to come out but it never did.Started last night (May 7th), very hard to follow the story. Don't really know if it's the way it is writen or all the biblical thing about Jews, Greeks, Catholic and Muslims. The more I think about it I guess it's both.Will read a bit more maybe it will get easier.It did not get better this was the author's way of telling a Jewish religious story.Very po [...]

    3. I thought this would be a nice story of the Jewish faith as told through the centuries. The history was interesting and it did seem that it could be enlightening to Jewish beliefs but I could not finish it because the sexual content was so graphic. One scene seemed to cover at least half a dozen pages, I kept flipping to try and get past it and it just continued on in the same vein. I understand the need to portray SOME of what happened but the length and attention to such a scene was unnecessar [...]

    4. I loved this book when I first read a "Readers' Copy" that I picked up at an American Booksellers Association many years ago. I love it again and maybe appreciate it more now that I have a degree in Jewish Studies. The history is fascinating and Gross makes it come alive as he traces one family from the Spanish Inquisition to modern times. In every generation there is a Rachel who is strong and courageous. However, in this reading, it seems that Gross ran out of steam towards the end. The last t [...]

    5. Read this as a loaner on Prime - loved it. I had read the Books of Rachel many, many years ago and always knew there was at least one other. Excellent storyline, continuity - may be fiction but shares a glimpse of how God's people have continued through the years through faith. Worth reading. I own the hardback copy of the Books of Rachel so will probably reread it as it has been a good 20 years. Yeah I keep books!

    6. This book had the potential to be a very good book.ere is some really neat Jewish history in it, but you have to drag yourself through all the violence, rape and torture of women to get to it. I didn't even finish the book, because the last section I read I had to skim the majority of to not be horrified. Not into this scene.

    7. This book was a prequel to 'The Books of Rachel.' It was very slow moving and not as exciting as the first. In fact, it took me forever to finish this book. However, it was not a bad book - just not as good as the first one.

    8. Extremely disappointed as I loved the Books of Rachel. Highly violent sexually and was not necessary to be that detailed in teh story line. Other flaws as well. Felt like reading it was a waste of time and I rarely feel that way about books.

    9. The stories - tales of five Rachels in the same family, beginning in 168 BCE and ending with the Spanish Inquisition approaching, have interesting content. The prose is wooden and pedantic.

    10. I didn't like it and in fact, quit reading it after I got about 1/4 of it read. I was really disappointed after reading The Books of Rachel which I loved.
