Love is Complicated

5 Dec

Film producer Marra B. Gad wrote the poignant book The Color of Love, a story of a mixed-race Jewish girl. It’s a powerful memoir chronicling the racial injustice growing up and how one family handles it. A crazy aunt, among others, creates havoc in a loving, Jewish family.

Gad’s prose and poise wowed the crowd at Temple Judea in Palm Beach Gardens Florida recently where I and Penny Beers (left) co-chaired the Mandel JCC’s “Celebrating Sisterhood Author Event.”

Spoiler alert: Love wins!

The Mandel JCC of Palm Beaches kicked off their book festival with best-selling author Pam Jenoff (right). Jenoff spoke about her life abroad as a junior diplomat in Krakow, Poland and segued into her newest book The Lost Girls of Paris.

Jenoff was just as engaging as her book about women secret agents during World War II. Let me share the opening teaser: A woman in Grand Central Station finds a suitcase of a dozen photographs. She takes the suitcase and becomes obsessed with finding out the truth about the women.

Don’t you love books about powerful, intelligent women?
