★ She opens the old story to be instead a lively psychological study of family and of greed and longing for paternal love and more. It works spectacularly well.. -Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Reviewer
★ The author, by a masterful use of shifting tenses, creates an illusion that the story has happened both long time ago and in the present at the same time; which gives this story a new definition of “Timeless.” . -Oleg Medvedkov, Top 500 reviewer
This tale is modern twist on an old tale: Jacob and his mother are plotting together against the elderly father Isaac, who is lying on his deathbed, in order to get their hands on the inheritance, and to take control of the power in the family. He yearns to become the favorite son, but sees only one way to achieve it: deceit.
In planning his deception, it is not love for his father, nor respect for his age that drives his hesitation–rather, it is the fear to be found out. And so, pretending to be that which he is not–he is now ready for the last moment he is going to have with his father.
This is no old fairy tale. Its power is here and now, in each one of us.
