You understand quickly why The Marrying of Chani Kaufman by Eve Harris was long-listed for the Man Booker award.
In a word, captivating! Fantastic Jewish fiction with incredible character development and story- I read it way too fast! This book finally came out in the U.S. on April 1st and yes, I already finished it. Get the picture?
From the publisher, “19 year-old Chani lives in the ultra-orthodox Jewish community of North West London. She has never had physical contact with a man, but is bound to marry a stranger. The rabbi’s wife teaches her what it means to be a Jewish wife, but Rivka has her own questions to answer. Soon buried secrets, fear and sexual desire bubble to the surface in a story of liberation and choice; not to mention what happens on the wedding night…”
A must- read!
