The Unbreakables is a captivating tale of Sophie Bloom, a Jewish woman from the Chicago suburbs, who jets off to France after her “perfect” marriage collapses, putting the broken pieces of herself back together while reviving her own joie de vivre. With her life fractured, a betrayed Sophie experiences a tsunami of emotions. There in the City of Light, Sophie begins the difficult journey of self-rediscovery. The trail takes her south, to the artistic hub of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. In this beautiful and seductive town, she embraces her desires, unearthing her sensuality, and reclaiming her passion for sculpting. Sophie becomes a “ghost sculptor,” working with a famous French artist who is dying. Together they create “Eve” — a masterpiece of the Biblical heroine. Ultimately, as Sophie comes to terms with who she is now and what she wants for her next chapter, she must figure out how the pieces of her past and present fit together. This powerful novel reflects second chances, female bonding, finding love again, faith, empowerment, and embracing the truths that set us free.
