In this sequel to AN UNORTHODOX MATCH, Gabra Zackman returns to narrate the story of secular-born Jewish Leah and her Orthodox Jewish husband, Yaakov, a widower. Zackman expertly creates the watchful atmosphere of their insular Brooklyn neighborhood. The devotion this unlikely couple share with each other, and with their five children from Yaakov's first marriage, as well as the support they receive from Yaakov's wise former mother-in-law, comes through in Zackman's warm tones, sparkling characterizations, and delicious accents. These gifts prove invaluable to Leah and Yaakov as they negotiate their path in a community that is uncomfortable with deviations from established customs and rituals. While this audiobook contains brief summaries of earlier events, listeners will benefit by beginning with the earlier audiobook. M.J.
