Overview

Unfolding in old New York, The Face Behind The Veil contains three overlapping sections: Naomi's Story, Rebecca's Story and Enter Teresa.Like curtains in a majestic, old movie theater, the curtains of this generational saga begin to part as Naomi is born with the mysterious birth veil over her face. To some this was a sign of a prophet. To others it was merely part of the amniotic sac. And what connection was there with the otherworldly visitor that the child would later meet?Naomi's mother believed her daughter would understand great mysteries. Indeed--and she would do so against the backdrop of unfolding history. The Great Depression would bring poverty, hobos and even the Grim Reaper to her family's door. World War II would see love lost and love found.Naomi's daughter, Rebecca, inherits not only her mother's physical DNA, but her spiritual DNA as well. Her penetrating green eyes seem to look through walls and into hearts. She names her daughter Teresa, after the ancient mystic, Saint Teresa of Avila. Like her namesake, Teresa walks a beautiful but treacherous path.This brings the story to modern times and a Victorian mansion where past meets present, good confronts evil and the mystery of the veil is revealed.

    NOT JUST A WOMAN'S BOOK!

    Some believe that a veil over the face at birth indicates ESP or second-sight. The main character, Naomi, was so born. Here is a family history that has the reader feeling like part of the family. Four generations is a lot of living, and the author expertly captures its highs and lows. The characters are very believable as real human beings. The mysticism concerning the veil stays mostly in the background, surfacing just often enough to keep the reader pondering its significance. Anyone who has a family, or misses having one will be caught up in this story that has everything a reader could want. I give it the highest rating.

    A must read for lovers of historical fiction

    This book took me on a fascinating journey into the mind and spirit, and into worlds seen and unseen. Much of the story takes place on the homefront during World War II. As someone who grew up during that time, I can say the book accurately portrays the people and patriotism I remember. This well-written novel was a worthwhile investment of my time and money.
