Read full description of the books:
Yes, clichés and facile presentations of Jews and Catholics abound in this novel, but I don't care - I love a good defrocked priest story and this was a good one.
I just loved everything about the relationship between Timothy and Deborah - the way it began, the manner in which it was consummated, and their eventual reconciliation. I did wish Erich Segal had done a better job showing how Deborah and Tim went from barely acquaintances to a romantic attachment for each other.
I felt the author did a decent job portraying the Jewish and Catholic faiths. The exploration of faith and how one hew to it (Deborah) or not (Daniel) is always an interesting thing to explore. I liked how the author showed that our background has a profound effect on us later in life, even if we try hard to submerge it, as Daniel did. No matter how hard we stray, it seems eventually, we do find our way back “home” in some respect.
I also liked the presentation of how Deborah was able to overcome the prejudices of her father and her Orthodox Jewish community to grow into her own person and do what she wanted, and stand on her own as a mature woman.
My final criticism involves Tim. I felt Segal needed to do a better job showing Tim's devotion to his faith, and that's the reason why he went into the priesthood and continued on for many years. As it was, I had the impression that Tim just "fell" into the collar because there were no other alternatives for him in life. His home life (and therefore, no familial support) was less than ideal, so it seemed his choices in life were limited to the people around him who did show him support, like his boyhood parish priest. When your parents are constantly berating you, I'm sure the priest who is your friend/confidant looks pretty good in contrast. Thus, I felt Tim was steered towards the priesthood, rather than had a true calling.
Still, I love this novel for all its glib narration and simplistic storytelling. Deborah and Tim have been my OTP for many, many years and I just wish there had been a sequel - even just a novella or prologue.
