I am happy to welcome our feature author Galia Baron and her book
Searching for Lilith
Dariya Talmor sends herself into exile because she carries a shameful secret she must hide from the man she loves. She finds comfort in her artwork and her unconventional pious neighbor and settles into a life of introspection and solitude. But her life does not proceed as planned. A chain of unexpected events pushes her back into the world to meet a variety of wise women; some are her contemporaries, some emerge from the pages of ancient legends and sacred books. The women guide Dariya on a journey of self-discovery by teaching her about the invincible female spirit, one of which belongs to the mythological Lilith, the first wife of Adam.
