Review--The Heart's Melody by Chava Epstein

The Heart's Melody (Black & White Edition)The Heart's Melody by Chava Epstein
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I received this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.
Noa and Amar meet each other in, "Mutual Advice", a support group for those who have relationship issues.  Amar and Noa end up doing sessions together and these sessions lead to a romantic relationship.  An relationship that is forbidden from the start as Noa is Jewish and Amar is Muslim.

Chava Epstein writes a romantic story filled with passion.  The reason why I didn't give this story more than two stars was because it just didn't make me feel the passion.  I'm not sure if some of the story got lost in translation, or if the format I was reading it in, distracted from the deeper meaning, but it was a task for me to finish this book.  Throughout telling the love story of Noa and Amar, there are also love letters and paintings and other stories that Noa is writing to tell about her love for Amar.  All of these side stories made me lose interest in the rest of what was going on.

On the other hand, I LOVED the artwork that accompanied each chapter in the book.
