Perkel to discuss
her recent novel

Local author Honey Perkel will discuss her latest book, “The Faithful Daughter,” at the Seaside Public Library.

The Friends of the Seaside Library will host Honey Perkel, local author of “The Faithful Daughter” at 7 p.m. Nov. 20.

The event will be in the library’s community room. Book sales and signings also are planned.

“The Faithful Daughter” is a historical romance that begins in Denver, Colo. in 1912. Peter Andrews, a journalist for the Denver Post, arrives at Rabbi Kirshman’s room and board to interview the venerable Jewish scholar. While there, he meets 19-year-old Rebecca, one of the Rabbi’s four girls, and finds himself falling in love with the favored daughter of the household.

When Rebecca’s brother marries out of the faith, Peter comes to understand how his being an “outsider” threatens the ties she shares with her family. Thus begins a 45-year pursuit from the streets of the Jewish district in Denver to the shores of Seaside, Ore., as Peter follows his heart … and the dream of making the Rabbi’s faithful daughter his wife.

Perkel is the author of “A Thousand Summers Trilogy” and the memoir, “Just Breathe: A Mother’s Story.” She lives in the hills above Seaside with her husband and two Shi Tzus.
