In this book the reader shall chance upon a voyage of of the heart, a voyage equally disheartening, beauty, the importance of owning a pet. Also a plea to do away with arms, the joy of a good fish dinner, precious stones, to beware birds of field and their gatherings, a heeding to beware of clowns, boy's first kiss with a dolphin, a flower girl who rather not,etc. "JUST A WORD OR TWO" takes the reader on a trip to the world of prose and enthralls with the magic of the moment as the reader takes off on a magic carpet ride into a wonderland of verses. It also introduces the reader to poetry a bit off the beaten path which would most certainly be a sight for sore eyes. Therefore for those poetry followers whom seek engrossing reading there is a wealth of perusing covering a quite diverse number of topics. It should altogether make for a welcomed wealth of more varied subject matter.

The year is 20—. The dream of a modern exodus awakens Scotland’s first Chief Rabbi Brew Moray. His wife Deborah, undergoing IVF, despairs of ever mothering a child. Later, in a religious radio slot Moray calls on his community to leave Scotland. His message provokes a head-on clash with Scotland’s father figure and first Prime Minister, Angus Montrose. Moray eloquently argues that his call to preserve Jewish continuity is no less radical than Montrose’s realization of Scottish independence from England. Meanwhile, unknown to Moray, Israeli agent Guriat Gaoni is covertly masterminding an audacious mission to rescue the Scottish Jewish community. Israel has learned that Scotland is secretly making a major arms deal with a loose-cannon Middle East regime. Contingent on the agreement, the arms supplier demands that Montrose pass laws to prevent Jews from leaving Scotland. The speculative fiction depicted in Another God has not come to life, not yet. But it could – after Scotland achieves independence. A rabbi’s dream could change the trajectory of one nation and save another nation from destruction. A prime minister’s Machiavellian patriotism could launch a new nation-state on an aimless course into oblivion. One woman’s miracle can produce a love-child. And another woman’s strength and daring might rescue a thousand lives. Scotland’s future history is yet to be written – or is it?
