Yair Weinstock is the versatile writer who is known both for his gripping mysteries and for his acclaimed series of classic Jewish stories, Tales for the Soul. There’s plenty of good reading here – the kind of reading that uplifts the heart and yes, touches the soul.
Holiday Tales for the Soul Volume 2, the latest in this series (by popular demand!), artfully demonstrates the author’s considerable skill in storytelling. In these stories – appropriate for the holidays – characters spring to life, and settings from Baghdad to Warsaw are colorfully described. Each tale is recounted with a lively blend of zest and warmth. Weinstock’s flair for drama is clearly evident too, as each absorbing story is masterfully constructed and brought to its satisfying conclusion. An enchanting volume for all ages.
