Interesting insight in to the life of Orthodox Jewish women and what they face in following their hearts and religion at the same time. A well written tale that is both beautiful and so very sad.

My new favorite book!! Months after I read it, I still can't stop thinking about all the choices Esther had to make and what they all lead to.
