    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 o

    The second book in the series, this story focuses on Miriam, Rashi s middle child When Miriam s fianc e 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 wit

    I recommend this period piece for anyone who is interested in learning 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 R

    An excellent sequel to Anton s first novel in the series Coming from a 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 than any other Jewish commentator and I can not imagine these actions bein

    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 w

    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

    I thought the book was outstanding The insight into how Jews lived and survived during that era is incredible It is a trilogy and I would suggest reading Book 1 before this text.

    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.
