In this story of three generations of a Southern Jewish familythere has been a secret, hinted at, obliquely wielded. In the crisisof her mid-life, Thea begins to unravel the mystery that has haunted her life, at first wanting to share it with her younger sister. In the adventure of deciphering some letters written in Yiddish between their mother's mother & sister, Thea unearths a heartbreaking lie & her sister begs her to desist. I found this book absorbing & very well done! END

This novel weaves a story that is simultaneously touching and suspenseful. The relationships between the principle character and her husband, her sister, and other family members, are poignant descriptions that bring to mind your own family relationships. I found myself wanting to know the ending while thoroughly enjoying the journey through this book.

I found Ms. Goldman's writing to be refreshing and fast paced. She caputres the hardships that occurr in every family, but are never spoken about. I look forward to more novels by this talented writer.

A great book that was well-written. It

doesn't have that many pages, but it

is still a great read
Every page has something wonderful -- a perfect turn of phrase, a bit of quiet wisdom. This is a beautifully-written novel that explores the relationship between sisters, but it is much more than that. It helps us to understand the complexity of all family relationships. One of the best books I've read in years.
