I read this book back in the 80's and loved it. I ordered it because I wanted to have a copy to keep and reread. I loved Jane Howard's writing style, the women she visited and interviewed, and her overall sense that women are fascinating. I highly recommend this book.
What a great book! I couldn't put it down, and I look forward to this author's next book (this was her first). The protagonist, Casey, is the daughter of Korean immigrants, and after graduation from Princeton she finds her self without a clear plan for her future. She leaves home due to conflicts with her father, and struggles throughout the book with family issues, money, career, love, and friends. The book offers a good view of the Korean American community, as well. I just lent it to a friend, but will post it if I get it back.
All of Ann Rules books are well researched accounts of true crimes, usually murders. She gives us insight into the criminal mind. Ann Rule is "America's best true crime writer". I have thoroughly enjoyed all of her books.
I found that I could not put this book down. It documents the journey of the Sarajevo Haggadah from its writing in the 1400's in Spain to its restoration in modern times in 1996. Learning history through the journey of a book certainly makes it alot more alive and interesting. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in history and certainly for any Jewish reader.
