PROMISED IN FIRE
In France, 1940, a young boy killed Hitler with a single shot. This is how this story begins.
A Jewish, feminist women's fiction with a hint of magical realism, this story, which was partly inspired by the Russian play, The Dybbuk will sure to awaken the fire in your womb and the hidden passions you have been yearning for.
If you loved 'Unorthodox' you will no doubt fall in love with this story.
Alma, a young married Hasidic Jewish girl who lives in a French town called Roshel, does not seem to be aware of just how much freedom she needs. In a world where women feel as though they must find a man to complete themselves, haunted by the ghosts of a past that is not even hers, she takes a terrifying, and harrowing path to self-discovery and finds her way to the wild woman that existed dormant in her, with the help of a mysterious, lustful man who calls himself “The Devil,” She finds her way to Barcelona, where she meets a group of curious gypsy people who will help her find her way out of the invisible cage in which she lives, and surrender to the fire and passion that fills her womb.
Alma falls in love and lust, but she realizes that she cannot belong to any man after she discovers the real truth of the past. That she already belongs to a ghost that will haunt to claim her forever.
She was promised. And that promise cannot be broken.
A story of a bond stronger than time, war and death, of a boy who destroys a world of dark men and the path a young woman must take to break the walls of a limiting, religious world.
Where fire once burned her people, a new fire in her womb now leads her to create a new life.
The Power of Love is revealed in the most fantastical story I've read!
Luna Or weaves an incredible tale with Promised in Fire. This story unfolds as we follow the main character in her daily thoughts, observations and dreamy imagination - set in a parallel world not so unlike our own. Life is magic and violent - and she finds refuge in the promise of deep soul mate love between two pieces of the same soul. As we journey through this world with her - it is apparent that the war between light and dark is calling our heroine and hero to delve deep into the darkness in order to spark the light within. You will be taken to the depths with them and may experience a shift in your own life as the characters awaken to the truth of their connection and the true Power of Love. At times I was left breathless, Luna Or is a modern day Oracle whose words are committed to not only remind us of MAGIC but also awaken us to the searing truth inside all men, women, plants, minerals and animals. Promised in Fire is an essential experience during this time of 2020 vision.
