This book was boring.  I did not like the author's style of writ

This book was boring.  I did not like the author's style of writing; I felt distanced from both the characters and the story.

    a touching book

    As an orthodox teenager, i was able to strongly realate to Tova Mirvis's wonderful book. she portrayed the orthodox community well, (although i have always lived in the city and i feel she was slightly to negative with many of the characters. i was exteremely touched by the parts with the rebellious teenage girls in the community. i have attended a jewish school all my life, and have many times questioned my religion and upbringing. i understand what the girls were going through, and felt that batsheva was the greatest thing that happened to the girls, and i wish that i could have someone like her. although i believe in my religion and plan on always liveing an orthodox life, that section of the book was incredibly realistic and touching for me.

    Great book to take on vacation

    This is the type of book that I really look for when I want a good read for a vacation. I find that books like this which focus on a 'closed' society really bring up a lot of issues for society as a whole. As a barely observant NYC Jewish woman, who sees Jewishness as more of a cultural than religious thing, this book was extremely touching and captivating. A non-Jewish friend of mine said she found reading about the holidays and traditions interesting. For me, I found the Southern versions more interesting. But the real point of the book for me is this-- can a 'closed' society exist without allowing its members to make the CHOICE to be there. In many ways, it is no different from ANY group. We all have expectations for our kids and feel rejected in some way if they choose a path that is very different from ours. In any case-- I really loved this book and I look foward to others by the same author.
