  DAYS OF AWE feels like the part of the day when the sun is about to go down and the light is brighter while the shadows are darker. Everything has a sharp edge, is strikingly beautiful and suddenly also a little menacing.”—Ramona Ausubel, The New York Times Book Review “Exuberantly transgressive.”—O, the Oprah Magazine.   Days of Awe features transliterations of everything which my community does aloud (and then some), and translations of absolutely everything, along with clear directions on where to turn next. Whether you’re a lifelong high holiday afficionado or attending your first Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur service, this book will help you through. Days of Awe audiobook, by Lauren Fox Only a year ago Isabel Moore was married, the object of adoration of her ten-year-old daughter, and thought she knew everything about her wild, extravagant, beloved best friend, Josie. But in that one short year: her husband moved out and rented his own apartment; her daughter grew into a moody. Days of Awe tells the story of Isabel coping with life in the year after her friend's death. She also reminisces about her life (childhood, college, her marriage, etc.). The book just rambles on and on until the end of the book (I did not ever think I would get to the end)/5(12).
