Pearl Abraham introduces us to Rachel, an Hasidic Jewish young woman who is coming of age, and struggling with the values and expectations of her community. Rachel's rebellion is found in the form of a library card, opening up her world, and creating doubt and conflict in her heart. It is fascinating to learn about the Hasidic traditions, but also difficult to watch a young woman struggle in a male dominated culture. An empowering read for anyone.
I loved this book. I found the Hassidic world in which Rachel lives utterly fascinating. As a reader and independent woman I was rooting for Rachel to rebel and feed her soul in any way she desires. She is utterly trapped and Pearl Abraham writes about a cloistered world in the way only one who was from that world can write. I couldn't put this down. A wonderful read.
