Is it your book, Mama? She nodded slowly. But I never saw it in the house. I have books in my closet, David. The question sent a tremor through her. She put the book on her lap and gazed at me. Her wide dark eyes were suddenly brimming with tears
Is it your book, Mama? She nodded slowly. From the years I went to school in Vienna. Her wide dark eyes were suddenly brimming with tears. I had touched the secret pool of sorrow within her. She nodded and turned her head away from me. I went down to the lake, wondering where in our apartment she kept the photograph I had seen in Mr. Bader’s study and which of the faces in the photograph belonged to my father’s dead brother.

In the Beginning book. Another absolutely remarkable book by Chaim Potok. David Lurie learns that all beginnings are hard . As in most of the other books I've read from him this follows a young extremely intelligent student who is studying Talmud and other Jewish teaching and eventually questioning some of what he has learned.

If a bomb fell in the street he wouldn’t hear it. He read as he ate; he read as he walked in the streets; he read as he rode the buses to and from school; he read in the bathroom. He told me one night that he thought he might like to teach English literature.
