Now, more than thirty years later, comes Walking Shadows , the twenty-fifth book in the series. The two principal characters are entirely recognizable, but their lives have changed dramatically. Rina is now in her fifties. He had long ago converted to Orthodox Judaism, and the couple meticulously observe the Sabbath. Shabbos dinner is a warmly welcomed weekly ritual. By contrast, Judaism was central to The Ritual Bath and to its immediate sequels, which are full of detail about the practices of the yeshiva where Rina was a teacher.
