Read in February, 2010

This is a very enjoyable book. I'm not usually fond of historical fiction, but here the history never overwhelms the fine story telling. As a Christian, I have become interested in Jewish tradition, and really enjoyed these glimpses into the lives of Jews in the middle ages. At the center of the story is Joheved, who grows from girlhood to motherhood, and faces the same struggles we do today: making a living, making a family, growing and learning and finding your place in the world and in your faith.
