This intense novel takes the reader into the mind of the principle character, Susannah Rabin. She is a mentally ill person who earns the readers sympathy. Kimhi's characterization of Susannah is so penetrating that Susannah almost becomes a real person in the reader's mind. One can easily become sympathetic to Susannah and the problems she has to deal with. Although many readers might have done things differently, one can see how Susannah became trapped into the life she leads.
