Praise for Strange Attractors:
“This novel by Ruhama Veltfort touches on some very painful and hidden matters in a very powerful and imaginative way. The real surprise is the novelists ability to use language and imagery to draw us in. There is, in Strange Attractors, not merely or only a strong story line and characters who confound us, but ‘the touch of the poet’ in the very apt and unusual description.”

About the Book:
A mother yearning for security and happiness in a second marriage has no idea that her loving husband, a successful scientist working on climate change, is molesting the pre-teen girls on the swim team he coaches. Spencer’s feelings for “his girls” develop into an obsession as he is increasingly provoked by Karen’s son Sammy, a college student defending himself against a charge of date rape. Meanwhile, Karen’s older brother, a man either too spiritual or too scared for an intimate relationship of his own, finds that coming to Sammy’s aid forces him to leave his monkish isolation and find his place in the real world.
