The Sisters Weiss

Naomi Ragen

In 1950's Brooklyn, sisters Rose and Pearl Weiss grow up in a loving but strict ultra-Orthodox Jewish family. Pearl adheres to her parents' demands, but Rose rebels, ultimately committing an act so unforgivable it will exile her from her family. Forty years later, Pearl's young daughter Rivka discovers the truth about her Aunt Rose, who has become a famous photographer. Reckless and naïve, Rivka sets off on a dangerous adventure that will stir up the ghosts of the past in ways she could never have imagined. A powerful and deeply moving examination of loyalty and betrayal by the author of The Tenth Song (2010).
