A Kiss for Rabbi Gabrille is one of the best books I've read, and I've read hundreds. The suspense mounted and carried you right through the book.


- Len

One finishes Destiny's Children with perhaps fiction's greatest reward, a lasting permanent understanding and appreciation of this period and location in America's ultimate unification.

- Kent

Destiny's Children's three main characters are immensely likable, and the challenges that they face are extraordinary and engaging. .


- Stephen

Roger Herst, a rabbi and a previously published and accomplished novelist, really knows about Jewish congregations, rabbinical politics, women's issues, and how to tell a great story.

Mr. Herst has created a strong, intelligent, yet vulnerable character in Rabbi Gabby Lewyn. His insights into the politics and intrigues of a synagogue were of special interest to me.
