In these compelling, well-crafted stories, you'll recognize yourself, or an aspect of yourself, or someone so different that you can only read on, open-mouthed:
- The seminary girl whose utter devotion to prayer leads her to the unimaginable
- The Holocaust survivor who bears a thirty-year grudge against the Rebbe
- A woman's childhood recollections about her mother's quirky obsession with chessed
- And a host of other true characters from the family album of Jews: the Chevra Kadisha volunteer, the vintner, the scribe, the mohel, the matchmaker and … the film director?!
But wait … there's more! At the start of each section of the book, Mrs. Feuerman shares her best tips for unlocking the writer inside you. So this book offers more than just great reading – it also includes the keys to great writing!
