The second book in the series, this story focuses on Miriam, Rashi's middle child. When Miriam's fiancée dies in a tragic accident, she is thrust into depression and despair. Not even her training as a midwife can bring her out of her funk. Only time and distance seems to help. After marrying Judah, the two struggle with a variety of issues. Judah struggles with homosexual urges, while Miriam decides to learn the art of circumcision, causing great debate within her community.

Overall, I thought this book was well written. It wasn't as engaging as the first book, which I found a bit surprising. I wish the book focused more on her being a midwife and mohl, which would have caught my interest a bit more. I think I just wanted a little more from the story, everything seemed a bit too easy for Miriam.

I had to read this book because I became so attached to Rashi's family after finishing Book 1 of the series, Joheved's story, I missed them. This book is well written and offers a fascinating account of Jewish life in medieval times. The characters are so well drawn that I feel like I know them better than my own relatives. It deals with the issue of homosexuality very openly and describes how it was handled in these ancient times. The book also describes the role of the educated woman in an anti-feminine society. While this is a novel, it is based on as much historical research as is available.

Miriam is truly a women in a man's world, In the first in this trilogy of books Miriam has already become a midwife and her development as such continues in this volume. But Miriam meets real opposition in a patriarchal world when she decides to become a Mohel as well. This adds great creative intrigue to Anton's story. But the real tragedy is Miriam's loss of loving and fulfilling marriage. Be prepared for your heart to be broken as you grow to love Miriam more deeply. If there is a weakness in this volume it is that you must read Book I and know Miriam's back story to fully appreciate this tragic outcome. I can say that Miriam is my favorite in the series. Can't wait for the Mini Series!

I recommend this period piece for anyone who is interested in learning more about France in the Dark Ages and about how Jews related to Gentiles during that time. Moreover, it goes into the study of Talmud and biblical scholarship in an easily-digestible form. The author has done impeccable research in writing this novel! If you like this novel, then I would also recommend reading Rav Hisda's Daughter, which is about the Babylonian Period.

An excellent sequel to Anton's first novel in the series. Coming from a more traditional Jewish background, I do wonder about the accuracy of portraying Rashi's daughters and sons(in-law) in such a sexual nature i.e. involved with pre-marital relations and homosexuality. Rashi shaped the face of Torah learning probably more than any other Jewish commentator and I can not imagine these actions being as common as Anton makes it seem. Especially, considering the main characters are his immediate offspring.

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this book. Taken at face value, it is a love story and I liked seeing the main characters perservering to learn and grow as Jewish women in their time.

PS. I am recommending this book to my book club, to discuss the accuracies and inaccuracies (from a Torah law perspective) that I found within the book. Should make for an interesting meeting.

While interesting and chock full of historic detail, I was disappointed with the whole series. Rashi's daughters are bourgeois Jewish ladies in 11th Century France. I was hoping to read about the experience of the whole community in this era, but bourgeois is all I got. Miriam's marriage and husband are interesting as social commentary, but just barely so. I also got the distinct impression that I was not the intended audience for this series, and that's an unpleasant feeling. Get it from the library, don't buy it.

This was the second in a series about Rashi's Daughters and takes place in 1075 Troyes, France. There are many levels to this book and one learns about Jewish life in Troyes, midwifery in the 11th century, many ideas from the Talmud and the Torah and a great deal about the fairs and the trading of goods that took place at that time in the world. The history is great , the life and living very interesting.
Maggie Anton's tale of Miriam's life and loves, second of the three-part series, will grab you right from the beginning. Her attention to details about medieval life in France, as well as issues which faced Jewish scholars at the time, and even today I dare say, will keep you reading and identifying with her well-drawn characterizations. The questions she raises may haunt you for a long time. At least until the third book!
