    Borrowing from the verse of an eighth-century Jewish poem, this imaginative novel is an engaging saga of intertwined histories, each character touched by tragedy and each finding some form of redemption in a world filled with mystical undercurrents. Geduld keeps us turning the page, wondering what will happen next.

    I really don't know what to say about this one. As I said earlier, is it fantasy? Not really. Thriller. Nope. It's just a fictious story. It's a story about how lives could get intertwined with each other in tragedy and finding redemption. I really don't know what to say about this one. As I said earlier, is it fantasy? Not really.

    What an incredible story! Author Carolyn Geduld has created one of my favorite books I've read in quite some time. There truly aren't enough adjectives to describe "Who Shall Live." There are such rich characters, amazing settings, and brilliantly interesting and satisfying twists and turns. Thorough enjoyed this piece, and look forward to gifting it to some friends who I know will also love it! Kudos to the author. What an incredible story!
