Synopsis

"“How I love this wonderfully engaging book, which reminds me of Gogol at his best--the characters, their whimsy and intensity, the dialogue in a class of its own. Absorbing, heart-breaking and consistently alive--What an accomplishment. The best of Jewish story-telling.”
Kim Chernin, IN MY MOTHER’S HOUSE

“DAUGHTER steers clear of simplistic Jewish views; instead, it tackles difficult mainstream issues with solid rabbinic grounding. It communicates their tension and warms us with familiar cultural tugs--Yiddish, Hebrew, New York. A joy to read. It’s a winner.”
Rabbi Stuart Kelman, Congregation Netivot Shalom

“The heroine of this rich and witty novel is truly a master of return. Moving from ‘Miss Take’ of childhood to a midlife in which, like Abraham, she negotiates with the God of Israel, she earns the right to say kaddish at her mother’s graveside.”
Ellen Spolsky, Ph.D. SATISFIED SCEPTIC
