Reminiscent of Eat, Pray, Love except a more academic exploration and not so self-indulgent. Lots of great Hasidic stories and tidbits and pre-judeo-christian stuff showing their overlap with Judaism.

Perle Besserman is a wonder. I did not learn a lot more about Kabbalah in this book, but about where women fit in Jewish Law and Jewish Mysticism. A good read with hilarious anecdotes from her own life this is definitely worth it. I highly recommend any books I have read by this author.
