Bread Givers: A Novel
The classic novel of Jewish immigrants, with period photographs. This masterwork of American immigrant literature is set in the s on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and tells the story of Sara Smolinsky, the youngest daughter of an Orthodox rabbi, who rebels against her father's rigid conception of Jewish womanhood. Sarah's struggle towards independence and self-fulfillment resonates with a passion all can share. Beautifully redesigned page for page with the previous editions, Bread Givers is an essential historical work with enduring relevance. I was assigned this book for a college history class.

But from always it was heavy on my heart the worries for the house as if I was mother.
