Batsheva is an unforgettable character, one who makes her claims on the reader's heart from the first page.The Ladies Auxiliary, beautifully and skillfully told, shows what happens when the outside world leans on a closed community so intent on keeping its children inside its tight walls that it cannot see it is losing them.
