Overview

For any young woman, it can be hard to follow the rules . . . especially when you’re falling in love.

But for Rachel, Hindy, and Leah, it’s especially hard. Because as Orthodox Jews, they live by a whole different set of rules. No touching a guy - any guy! - before marriage. No dating - unless they are considering marriage - and then, only marrying a man who rates high on their parents’ checklists.

All Rachel’s mother wants for her daughter is to see that her daughter marries well. Naturally, this is where the rich, Columbia U educated lawyer comes in. The problem is, Rachel’s already found a guy who makes her heart race. A Rabbi. But how could a struggling Rabbi possibly give Rachel the security her mother demands?

Hindy is very pious and only wants to marry a Talmud scholar. The problem is, she’s in love with an Orthodox Jewish guy she works with. How long can she keep saying no when her heart says yes? And will she be able to stick to her values amidst temptation?

Leah wants to be a doctor, but her mother insists she study computers even though she hates computers. Her mom, a struggling immigrant, has fixed ideas about the course to success and marriage - which doesn’t include any of Leah’s wishes. What will it take for Leah to break out of her mom’s - and community’s - expectations and follow her dreams?

In Brooklyn Love, three Orthodox Jewish women who are caught between crushing guilt of defying their mothers and their desire to be ''normal'' are there for each other as they try to figure out who they really are . . . and what they really want.

    I found Brooklyn Love to be a very fascinating and entertaining

    I found Brooklyn Love to be a very fascinating and entertaining read. I have to admit I did not know a lot about Jewish customs before reading this book. So, I found it interesting. I am always interested in learning something new.




    Yael Levy has written a very touching story about young ladies of the Jewish faith trying to find their way in the world.




    Rachel's mother wants her to marry for security. She thinks she has found the perfect man to marry or at least perfect in her mother's eyes. This is really good story about looking beyond the shiny surface to what is hidden under it. I really liked Rachel, she's trying to find her place in the world as well as follow the Orthodox Jewish customs. She's a strong girl that ends up finding her way through the maze of life. I'm not going to tell you anymore here, you'll have to check it out for yourself.




    Hindy feels like the ugly duckling in the pound of swans with her sisters. She's disappointed she has not found a man to marry when the man that is just perfect for her has been there all along. It was fun watching this story unfold. It was a friendship turn relationship and I love those stories.




    Leah has goals that she wants to do and her life is not going the way it should. I felt bad for Leah at the end of this story. Once again I don't like to go into to much detail, I would hate to spoil a story for anyone. 




    On the whole I really enjoyed this very touching story about love, friendship, and families. I enjoyed Yale Levy's style of writing and I would certainly enjoy reading more of her work. 




    I was given the opportunity to read and review this book to share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts on this book with you all.
