it was amazing
bookshelves: jewish-fiction
Read in January, 2005

One of my favorite Jewish-themed books. Explores the dichotomy of a feminist-thinking mother and her drug-addled daughter who ultimately turns to strict, Orthodox Judaism. The story is told largely through letters and personal narratives, which eloquently raise complex and unbiased questions about the nature of faith, family, and a woman's role in both.
