Rembrandt's Model

Yeshim Ternar

"Ternar's linking of two narrative threads is beautifully accomplished, and she reinforces connections across space and time with echoes and mirrors created by her poetic imagery [...] Without offering simple solutions, Ternar gathers the shards of light connecting the fates of these unforgettable characters, piecing together a compelling and timely story." -John Brooke, Montreal Review of Books

"It stands the conventions of the historical novel on their head, leavens them with magic realism and time travel, and mixed in doses of philosophy and mysticism." -Elaine Kalman Naves, Montreal Gazette

"Entertaining and thought-provoking tale for readers who are acquainted with Jewish history and mysticism." -Esther M. Price, Canadian Book Review Annual
