Overview

DISOWNED is coming of age, love story about Rivkah, a teenage girl who is raised in a tight, closed community that demands she conform to their ways. Strong, rebellious and full of spirit, Rivkah has to find her own path. She runs away and falls in love with a young man from another world.

Horrified, her parents disown her and mourn her as dead. Rivkah finds herself cut off not only from the world she was raised in, but from all that used to be meaningful to her.

Rivkah is willing to give up everything for the man she loves. She marries, and we watch her journey as she lives with her husband and meets his friends, who find her strange. We watch her explores different paths and teachings in order to help her find her true way, and where she really belongs.

Then, suddenly, a great change takes place: Rivkah discovers she is bearing a child. Echoes from the past overcome her. She wants the child to know where they came from, and must return to her past and the people in it, the family that disowned her. In the process, Rivkah discovers who she really is and what it means to love and forgive.

    I loved this book

    This is an intense coming of age story about a very serious teen who was raised in an ultra orthodox Jewish community in New York. Interestingly, the author incorporates the (presumably) fictional protagonist forming a teacher student relationship with Eido Roshi, presumably Eido Shimano, a famous controversial Zen teacher. At any rate, the writing was superb. Exceptional for a self-published novel. There are a number of typos -- I would encourage the author to pay a professional copy editor to do a line edit.

    The story was a page-turner, holding my attention to the end. I just stumbled on it, looking for spiritual YA fiction. I have no connection to the author.
