I found this book in high school, and haven't stopped reading it yet. It's analysis of Jewish culture in a non-Jewish world, respect for history tugging against the need some people feel to move on, and family ties that both support and suffocate all rang true to me, a Jewish woman in assimilationist America. Do you move forward, potentially sacrificing your name and your language, or do you refuse to risk losing the only things that are family and G-d given? We watch as brothers answer these questions differently, and the repurcussions that visit them.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
