Overview

With relentless faith, and against all odds, Estherleon Schwartz is singing!

From German occupied France where the nuns sheltered and hid her from the Nazis …..

to a narrow escape over the barbed wire fence at the Swiss border where her father cried to the heavens, "Save my daughter and she will always serve you."….

to America at age 8 with an emotionally destructive, embittered mother….

to single motherhood at 23, and welfare in a cockroach infested apartment.....

to an empire of clothing stores.....

to personal tragedy..... and, finally, with steadfast faith,

to the fulfillment of her father's covenant and her own search for purpose and healing…..

Estherleon weaves a poetic, self-effacing tale of how she finally came to find her voice in her newly released book, Tears of Stone and My Deal with God.

“…a beautiful study of a complicated relationship with a mother and her daughter…the reader will easily relate to similar issues within their own life and will find this book to be inspiring and healing.”

-- Howard Richman

"...In spite of everything, and when all is said and done, with a brave heart I sang my way through it all.”

Cantor Estherleon Schwartz

    A lesson in tenacity and faith

    Estherleon Schwartz has not had an easy life. In this touching memoir, she is unflinchingly honest about her circumstances and her attitude towards the people she loves the most, and those who hurt her the most (sometimes one and the same person). Her naked honesty allows us to see how she was ultimately able to 'forgive' the mother who hurt her because she grew to understand her. Written in a unique style that interlaces journaling with original poetry,this is a short read that I recommend for anyone, particularly someone looking for understanding.
