Description

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE? Readers' Favorite 2017 Silver Medal Winner. When he wakes up naked and alone in the Mount of Olives Cemetery, Moshe Karlin doesn't remember dying two years ago, nor does he realize how hard he'll have to work to win back his perfect old life... and his wife. In fact, he'll be lucky to survive his first week on the streets of Jerusalem. Meanwhile, other changes are afoot in the Holy Land. A reluctant prophet prepares to deliver a message of redemption--and the end of life as we know it--when a freak accident changes the course of history. An Unexpected Afterlife is the first "highly original" novel in the new fantasy adventure series of biblical proportions, The Dry Bones Society. If you enjoy romance and adventure, humor and heartbreak, engaging characters and non-stop surprises, then you'll love this romp in legends of the Resurrection and the World to Come. "An amazing read... a masterful storyteller." (Readers' Favorite, 5-Star Medal) "Fascinating... You've got to read it." (Esra Magazine) "A mind-opener... a tour de force." (Federation Star) "One of the best books I have read in a long time." (EM, Amazon Reviewer) Read An Unexpected Afterlife now to experience an afterlife adventure like no other.show more

Review quote

"Excuse my staggering there just now. I admit I'm a bit wobbly and out of whack after reading Dan Sofer's book.Truly, I don't recall ever having a reading experience like this one, which opens with a dead guy finding himself naked on the Mount of Olives... Will he be able to get his life back?Every hour of every day brings turns and twists. It's hard to put the book down in anticipation of what happens next to Moshe Karlin and his unexpected 'soulmates'... The results are fascinating.If you aren't already running to get a copy of this extraordinary reading experience, then I have done you an injustice. But I'm still not giving the plot away. No more spoilers. You've got to read it to see for yourself." - ESRA Magazine "Grabbing you from the very first page, An Unexpected Afterlife takes you in unexpected directions, combining a page-turning mystery with discussion of one of the fundamental beliefs of Judaism." - Ellis Shuman, author of Valley of Thracians ..".a unique intriguing, and entertaining story. I really like the way Dan Sofer describes his flawed characters who also seem complex and complicated... the individuals, family, community, Jewish traditions, friends and hope. I also enjoyed the satire of their adventures. I would highly recommend this entertaining book and hope to read more in this series." - Linda's Book Obsessionshow more
