MY BOOKS

In an artful way throughout this absorbing, chilling tale, characters wonder what can stop the tragedy of hatred from overcoming community.

Booklist Starred Review

 

Adeptly conveys the history, from Mikhail Rybachenko's real name to the bitter bigotry and

 

bloodbath...Critical for its underexplored subject.

Kirkus Reviews

Rachel's Secret effectively uses the historical record to create a compelling image of this troubled period,

 

making meaningful points about the role of hatred and hope in society--and how young people can break

 

free from the shakles of tradition.

iTunes, Book of the Week

A poignantly realistic portrayal of  young Jewish woman's struggle towards independence

 

in early 20th C San Francisco, trying to embrace the new world while grappling with her ties to tradition.

The Jury, Vine Awards for Canadian Jewish Literature (Rachel's Hope shortlisted, 2016)
