Giving Up America

SKU: ND-AF-1541 Category:

In her “remarkable first novel” (Entertainment Weekly), Pearl Abraham “deftly lift(ed) the opaque curtain from the closed Hasidic world” (New York Times Book Review). Now she tells the poignant story of a marriage cracking and collapsing under the weight of conflicting faiths. Deena’s father, a Hasidic scholar, opposes her marriage to the non-Hasidic Daniel based on Kabbalistic interpretations — but Deena ignores her father’s prediction and she and Daniel begin to renovate their dream house in Brooklyn. When Daniel brings a beautiful Gentile coworker home from the office one day, their subsequent three-way friendship — and the betrayals it breeds — leads Deena to contemplate where her true home lies, and how far she is willing to travel to find it.
