Overview

In a sleepy Tennessee mountain community during the early 1900's, four lives are about to impact each other. Each so completely opposite of the others that they would not have met, unless something caused them to interact.

A Dreidel is a four-sided top used as a children's game during the season of Hanukah. Each side has a different Hebrew letter with a different value attached. The four letters Nun, Hei, Gimmel, and Shin; form the acronym for: Nes Gadol Hayah Sham-'A Great Miracle Happened There'. Dreidel is the Yiddish name for the Hebrew word Zivion, which in English is a 'top'.

As each of the four lives spin into each other, they are asked to add something, take all of something, or part of it. Or, they rest.

But, they could not see the hidden hand that moves them. As the child's hand spins the zivion, so God spins us. This is the commonality of love from the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

When they slowed down to see the larger picture of the events that unfolded around them, they too, could see a great miracle happened there!

Truly enjoyed reading this book. Had a great story about growth in a small community. Growth of friendships and spiritual growth with many of the charactors. Very enjoyable read, looking forward to another with more about each one in the book.
