"Who She Was" brings a compassionate yet unflinching eye to the American Jewish experience. Researched as a history, written like a novel, Who She Was stands in the tradition of such classics as "Call It Sleep" and "The Assistant." In bringing to life his mother, Samuel G. Freedman has given all readers a memorable heroine.
