The Ladies Auxiliary (Ballantine Reader's Circle)

by

The Ladies Auxiliary (Ballantine Reader's Circle) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When free-spirited Batsheva moves into the close-knit Orthodox community of Memphis, Tennessee, the already precarious relationship between the Ladies Auxiliary and their teenage daughters is shaken to the core. In this extraordinary novel, Tova Mirvis takes us into the fascinating and insular world of the Memphis Orthodox Jews, one ripe with tradition and contradiction. Warm and wise, enchanting and funny, The Ladies Auxiliary brilliantly illuminates the timeless struggle between mothers and daughters, family and self, religious freedom and personal revelation, honoring the past and facing the future. An unforgettable story of uncommon atmosphere, profound insight, and winning humor, The Ladies Auxiliary is a triumphant work of fiction.

Synopsis:

The Orthodox families of Memphis are as proud of their century-old Southern roots as they are of their Jewish heritage. Into this fiercely protective community comes a convert to Judaism--Batsheva, young, beautiful, recently widowed, and accompanied by her five-year-old daughter, Ayala.
