Review: Rashi's Daughters - Book III: Rachel by Maggie Anton
Take a journey to France in the eleventh century and witness the life of Rachel, Rashi's youngest daughter. Rashi is a Jewish scholar and he has made sure his three daughters are educated in the Talmud. Rashi has high hopes for favorite daughter Rachel. Rachel has married a worthy man who cherishes her and understands her calling in life. Rachel plans to follow in her fathers footsteps and become a scholar.
When a war breaks out, all thoughts and hopes must be put aside because survival becomes the most important goal. Rashi has a stroke and Rachel is determined to stay by his side even when her husband demands they flee to Spain. Decisions must be made even if it means hurting people you love. Will Rachel make the right choice and live happily ever after?
A beautiful story that will warm even the coldest of hearts. If you believe in the strength of family bonds, I think you would enjoy this book.
I'd like to thank Mary from Plume Publicity for sending me this book to review.
