Beautiful and intelligent, Batsheva struggles valiantly to be a true daughter . Amazingly, this is her first book Naomi Ragen is an excellent story teller.

Beautiful and intelligent, Batsheva struggles valiantly to be a true daughter of Israel, obedient to her husband and the laws of Hasidic life. Amazingly, this is her first book. I look forward to reading the rest, one at a time. Naomi Ragen is an excellent story teller. She brings her characters to life and let's them present themselves as very real people with good and bad traits. She presents a view into a world so that one sees all sides.

Father Paul Craven looked up, recognizing the voice. It was one of his most promising novitiates, a student of rare brilliance. I question my ministry. Father Craven, who had heard so many things in the dark of his confessional, nevertheless found himself shocked. He, of all his students? He had pinned so many hopes upon David. He would make a wonderful theologian, a sensitive and caring parish pries. hat has caused you to question your calling, my son?. I have found love and question the Church’s answers.

Batsheva is the pampered daughter of a wealthy Hasidic businessman, who grows up in the affluent suburbs of Los Angeles. However, everything changes when she turns eighteen and finds out that her father has made a vow which will force her to marry a man she hardly knows. On her wedding day, she enters a strange and foreign world. She finally has no choice but to fight for freedom to live in a modern world. I highly recommend reading this book, it will change how you view the world.

Ms Ragen has done it again.. Another of her stories about religious women and the obstacles they climb to adjust or change their lives. Batsheva was a free spirit who thought she could take over the world. She had big dreams that also included marrying and starting a family. But she was not prepared for the arranged marriage her father made her; her overbearing husband who felt he possessed her and all her belongings; and when she could not take it anymore - well, read the book....she does the unimaginable, takes it to the next level and disengages herself and son from her family.....only then does she find peace, love, kindness, and a new life for herself....but finds this can only be completed by returning to the old life and settling a few things....excellent and well written as usual. I would have given it 5 stars except there were many parts, while beautiful and descriptive about the country of Israel....seemed long and moved the book along at a slower pace than I would have liked.

Naomi Ragen is an excellent story teller. She brings her characters to life and let's them present themselves as very real people with good and bad traits. She presents a view into a world so that one sees all sides. I would have given this book 5 stars, but it lacked good editing. The first part rambled so much that if I was not already aware of Naomi Ragens good story telling, I would have given up. The last half of the book was less rambling and it is worth wading through the first part, to savor the good story. This book is well worth the struggle, but future releases should be better edited.

Such a well written book! Naomi Ragen ranks as one of my favorite authors...and I've only read one of her books! This book as an awesome plot, twists and turns with some surprises. She describes the emotions her characters feel so well! It's as if I was standing in the same room with them and I also felt the same emotions. At times the story has you so riveted to it that you cannot put it down. You must know what is going to happen. It is a wonderful story. And believable as well. I just borrowed a second novel by her through KindleUnlimited!

One of the most outstanding books I have read depicting the life of a young Jewish woman and the lack of choice she had growing up in her strict Jewish family not only in her youth under her parental control, but also in her married life under the absolute control of her husband. She was totally subjugated to their will despite her wishes. This is a novel of the heroine's strength and courage and finding her way against all odds.

This is a wonderful book, written by a very talented author. I have enjoyed Chiam Potok's books as well, as they also give me a glimpse into the Hassidic world.
Near the end of the book I felt uncomfortable as the author began to deal with Christianity. I am a Christian and do not see my faith at all as the author described it. However, I read on, and really appreciated seeing how a Jewish person sees my faith. Very enlightening. I have also read The Saturday Wife, years ago, and did not realize till I was nearly finished that it was the same author. I will look for more of her books. I believe that to know the scriptures (both old and new testaments) gives added enjoyment to the reading of this book.

Very enticing and well written story. I, rarely, repeat the book's plot in my reviews. This story keeps you thinking and I enjoyed it, very much. Even though I am oft opposed to these type of lifestyles, in this novel it is charming and well told. I kept reading, not wanting to put the book down. A glimpse into Orthodox Abuse and the secrets that are kept at the toll of the women they affect.
I can't put the book down. I can't imagine what Batsheva went through with the abusive husband she had. The world he was brought up in and how he had not know how how to treat a woman. He lived in a close minded world of Hassidaism and their ways and treatment of women. How her father who adored her ignored her cries for her for his believe of carrying on his family name for what happened to him in Germany.
I don't understand if a parent adores his child how he can just close his eyes for his beliefs, He his very narrow-mined and in a world of his own,
