    Eyeopening story

    A woman's journey into finding peace and closeness to God and the futile marriage with a man from a super strict sect within the Hassidic Jewish community.

    great book

    This book reads like a novel but is a bitingly honest memoir. This almost manic account of drug abuse and wanton, anonymous sex, swings to ultra-conservative Orthodox Judaism, and as the story closes, the pendulum is swinging back again. I pray it doesn't swing "way far". I was given a glimpse into a world that is a part of my children's heritage and found it intriging as well as scary with it's religious stance. We all have our journeys in this life. I'm interested in reading the sequel to the rest of Reva's story.

    Painfully exquisite...

    The Rabbi's daughter mirrors life's struggle for so many of us in so many ways. My heart responded to this book and even though the writer's life and mine are so different, we walk the same path. I think it is a well traveled path and Ms. Mann's memoir gives us so much to identify with. It ultimately has to do with the constant challenge each of us faces of identifying, understanding, and living our authentic selves. The book is also a window into the customs and ways of the secular orthodox jew and the hassidic jew. This was a beautifully written memoir with a lot of lessons shared and learned.
