Now in paperback. In this critically acclaimed National Book Award nominee and debut novel, the author has crafted a powerful tale of faith, families, and ancient tradition—a story of passionate love and conflict that confirms her as one of the singular writers of her generation. Goodman explores the private lives of three Jewish families who summer together in the upstate community of Kaaterskill, New York. The novel is about strict loyalties, inner doubts, the pull of tradition, and the hunger for change.
"A quiet lovely study of the eternal pull of human nature vs. the desire to do the right thing."—Library Journal, starred review
