Book Club Sistas: Here’s Your Summer Reading:The Sisters Weiss

The next gathering of our Sisterhood Book Club will be scheduled sometime before the High Holidays at the Hudson home of Ilene Shapiro.

The selected title is The Sisters Weiss by author Naomi Ragen. describes the story (in part) as follows:

In 1950’s Brooklyn, sisters Rose and Pearl Weiss grow up in a loving but strict ultra-Orthodox family, never dreaming of defying their parents or their community’s unbending and intrusive demands. Then, a chance encounter with a young French immigrant turns Rose’s world upside down, its once bearable strictures suddenly tightening like a noose around her neck. In rebellion, she begins a secret life- a life that shocks her parents when it is discovered…

A date and time will be scheduled soon. Watch the Schmooze for updates!
