Jerusalem Maiden: A Novel
Talia Carner dicussed her book, Jerusalem Maiden: A Novel, where she presents the story of Esther Kaminisky, who knows that her duty is to marry young and produce many sons to help hasten the Messiah's arrival. When her French teacher discovers her talent for drawing, Esther wonders if God has a special destiny for her as an artist, not a mother. As the years pass, Esther sacrifices her desire for painting and devotes herself to God's path as a "Jerusalem Maiden." When her beliefs clash with her surging passions, Esther must confront questions of faith, destiny and God and herself.
