I really enjoyed reading this book. If you want to learn about women's lives in an Orthodox Jewish community (this one is in England), this novel is excellent. The writer knows and writes about her characters extremely well. The world is small and cl...more

It's a gothic novel that starts out in an old bookstore. That "gets" me right away. There's the young woman writer who works in the store, and the much older, well-published woman writer who has decided this young woman is the one she wants to write...more

Not a long book, if you don't count all the footnotes (which I do scan and did find a few interesting facts). But full of so much history and lore about the Franklins and the times they lived in. Jane was Benjamin Franklin's sister and they lived suc...more

I found this treasure in The Crossroads store on Jay St. in Schenectady but perhaps it's on Amazon too? It's a book that I'll keep, pillowed by other awesome books on women's spirituality.

I bounced back & forth between 4-stars and 5-stars for the rating. I don't consider it a classic but, dammit, I really enjoyed this book. The plot held me, kept me reading. Characters excellent (& often fun). Love the witchiness. In the end,...more

“God is not a Christian, God is not a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Hindu, or a Buddhist. All of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don't think my tradition defines God, I think it only points me to God.”
