I won’t actks mo The novel is about 3 young people who grew up in New York, Deborah and Daniel who are children of a famous Rabbi, and Tim who’s an orphaned Catholic. The traditions, rituals, strictness, hypocrisies of the Jewish and Catholic religions come crashing together when Deborah 14 and Daniel 16 meet in NY. Timothy, Deborah’s love interest in the book, is a Christian who finds his affinity towards the Church in the late beginning of the book. You feel their struggles as the learn to live their lives apart and together.

While some may criticise this, I do admire how in each of his books there is a message about the realities and unpleasantness of life. I suspect that after the success of Love Story, both the book and the film, he wished to repeat it and wrote his books in a way which could be easily adapted to a film plot.

I thought the author did a great job describing the difficulty of growing up in the shadow of a powerful and well-known father.

Maybe I’m biased because I know so few pious people in real life, so the characters and their storylines seemed really far-fetched. The emotions they feel are raw, honest and quite egich, even if some of the plot may not be.

Despite all this, I enjoyed Acts of Faith. She was raised to be docile and dutiful–the perfect rabbi’s wife–but love will lead her to rebellion. His home life and therefore, no familial support was less than ideal, so it seemed his choices in life were limited to the people around him who did show him support, like acyos boyhood parish priest.

He delves into religion and love: Its a saga that explores too of the most popular faiths – Christinaity and Juadaism. It does read as fairly predictable and in a “tell you what to think kind of way”, but I do think it raised some very interesting questions. I also liked the presentation of how Deborah was able to overcome the prejudices of her father and her Orthodox Jewish seegal to grow into her own person and do what she wanted, and stand on her own as a mature woman.

Yet the dilemmas the characters each face identify the different types of love and the joys and duties that go along with them.
