About the Author
Praise For The Romance Reader…
"This story, dealing as it does with guilt and God, is about a journey as brave as Huck Finn's, as difficult as Holden Caulfield's, as stark as any I've read."
Anne Roiphe, Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Wonderful . . . sheds light on two intriguing mysteries: life within an ultra-Orthodox Jewish communiy and the bittersweet passage through female adolescence."
Hilma Wolitzer, Newsday
"An assured, smoothly written book, narrated in a muted voice that seems to whisper secrets into the reader's ear."
The New York Times Book Reveiw
"Compelling throughout . . . we don't want to leave Rachel without knowing everything that happens to her for the rest of her life."
San Francisco Chronicle
