Here's a webpage that is written from a Jewish perspective that describes Purim - it's background, modern customs, and even contains a recipe for Hamantashen, a traditional cookie eaten during this celebration. I thought you might find this interesting!

"Faithful" by Kim Cash Tate

Cyd's world turns upside down on her fortieth birthday - and her friends aren't having such an easy time, either. Cedric, the best man at her sister's wedding, is attractive and smooth, but he doesn't share her faith. Dana caught her husband in bed with another woman, and Phillis wants her husband to share her faith more than anything and is depressed by his unwillingness to even listen to her heart. The members of the Daughter's Fellowship hold each other up through thick and thin - but will they be able to help each other through all of this??

Cash's book was not what I expected, and at first, as each woman's life fell apart, I was disappointed by the blunt and worldly view of sex that was presented. As the plot continued, however, more of God's truth entered the picture. By the end, a realistic view of sin and how to handle temptation had been presented. Cash's characters were believable and and real. I will definitely look for her next book!

I was given a copy of this book by Thomas Nelson in exchange for an unbiased review.
