Chani Kaufman ist hübsch, intelligent und hat ihren eigenen Kopf – nicht die besten Voraussetzungen auf dem hartumkämpften jüdisch-orthodoxen Heiratsmarkt. Schon gar nicht, wenn ihr zukünftiger Ehemann Baruch Levy sein soll. Baruch wird bald in Jerusalem studieren und der erste Rabbi in einer Familie erfolgreicher Unternehmer sein. Sie haben sich dreimal gesehen, sie haben sich noch nie berührt, aber sie werden heiraten. Chaim Zilberman und Rebecca Reuben waren auch einmal Studenten in Jerusalem. Heute sind sie Rabbi und Rebbetzin Zilberman, angesehene Mitglieder der orthodoxen Gemeinde Londons. Aus Liebe hatte Rebecca in das streng geregelte Leben an der Seite eines Rabbis eingewilligt – Sneakers gegen Ballerinas, Jeans gegen bodenlange Röcke und den Wind in ihren langen Haaren gegen einen Scheitel getauscht. Vier Menschen auf der Suche nach ihrem Weg, zwischen Religion und vermeintlicher Freiheit.

I’m hesitant to write a review for any book I read during COVID19 isolation, but the fact that I finished this book at all bodes well for it and leads me to give 4 instead of 3 stars. Reading has actually been difficult for me during this time, and I’ve abandoned or started and not finished so many books! This one was so intriguing. It drew me into a world that fascinates me and put me deep inside of it, feeling connected to the people and the culture while also seeing it from the outside. It was a unique feeling to read it and feel both included and yet an outsider, so kudos to the author for that. The book felt like an experience, yet deeply personal. The Jewish families and relationships, though part of a world I don’t know, shared universal human experiences through the lens of culture. Hence, the feeling of connection yet wholly other. It was a slow read at times, but that may be in part due to the real-world climate I’m reading in right now. The ending left me hopeful for one relationship but felt unfinished for another key character. Purposefully so, I think, but it feels up to the reader to consider how another chapter or future dot on her timeline would read. In that way, you stay connected to the book for a bit longer after you close it. ( )

A fascinating and exciting book. It exposed me to the figures of a community whose external appearance is different but whose internal expressions are identical. It is precisely the fact that this is a very closed community that attracted me, and the inner world of the characters, as the writer wrote in depth, that left me hooked until its end. ( )

I have very mixed feeling about this book. I really liked the two main story lines; that of Chani and Baurch, and the Rebbetzin and the Rabbi, as well as that of Avromi. I thought the author handled their developing relationships and their thoughts about their orthodox religion well. I found each storyline believable and totally engaging. I read this book very quickly because I could not put it down, I needed to find out how each couple's journey progressed. I did have a few quibbles; Chani did not seem to be much of a friend to her best friend, nor a nice sister, and there was a scene on a school outing that seemed written from the author-as-a-teacher's point of view rather than Chani's.

What I did not like about this book was it's one note portrayal of the Orthodox community. As an outsider it seems to me to be a stereotypical, one sided view. Every home but one is described a dirty, worn, shabby. Every woman once married is stout, worn out, gossipy, mean spirited, exhausted etc. Now, I am not a member of this community, but have lived in proximity to them, and have friends who have joined the community, and yes, some of them fit the description, some of them, well, let's just say there are $50 wigs and there are $8,000 wigs, clothing- same. There are gyms and spas for the Orthodox women in my city, mansions and ghettos. It did not seem true to her character that Becca, the future Rebbetzin would have a dirty, shabby home. That bothered me.

The writing itself was not great. Harris can spin a tale, but she need a better editor. She repasts phrases and descriptions ad nauseum, and many characters speak with the same voice. Final thought; in her acknowledgements Harris thanks her "frum friends" - I hope she is not surprised if they are not so friendly anymore~ ( )

Clever and satisfying novel about those curious, bright and rational individuals living within the insular, conformist world of Orthodox Judaism. Not easy for a young man or woman faced daily with inconsistencies, untruths and insincerity of this restrictive community to ask questions, learn the truth, let alone express their individuality, thoughts and desires. But not impossible if done covertly and with caution.

Marriage may initially seem like an escape from a too large and poor family, or from demanding, critical and domineering parents or older siblings, but with time it becomes evident that one may have jumped from the frying pan directly into the fire.

I believe Chani will soon see she may be luckier than most in her husband, and he with her.

Harris has done an amazing job of describing the individuals, the community, it’s rules, the questions from within and from outside, without being academic, boring, or disrespectful. Her writing is strong, fresh and inviting. And I love the twists and turns the novel takes.

I definitely recommend this novel to those who like to learn about different ways of life, and yet know that most people are more similar than different. ( )
