Born and raised in a tight-knit Orthodox Jewish family, Mirvis committed herself to observing the rules and rituals: to observe was to be accepted and to be accepted was to be loved. She married a man from within the fold and quickly began a family. Her doubts became noisier than her faith, and it became a suffocating existence. Leaving her husband and her faith, Mirvis set out to discover what she does believe and who she really is.

Mirvis' memoir, centering on her divorce and separation from Orthodoxy, is clear-eyed and soul-baring. Maintaining a novelist's sensibility for storytelling, she opens herself as a character readers can relate to, even if their own path is very different. Highly recommended.
