Naomi Ragen

Lola has her life all set up: business degree, handsome fiancé, fast track career. Then, after years fruitlessly searching for love, marriage, and children, she decides to seek spirituality and meaning outside the parameters of modern life in the insular, ultraorthodox enclave of Boro Park, Brooklyn.

There, fate brings her to the dysfunctional home of newly-widowed Jacob, a devout Torah scholar, whose life is also in turmoil, and whose small children are aching for the kindness of a womanly touch. While her mother direly predicts she is ruining her life, enslaving herself to a community that is a misogynistic religious cult, Lola’s heart tells her something else. But it is the shocking and unexpected messages of her new community itself which will finally force her into a deeper understanding of the real choices she now faces and which will ultimately decide her fate.
