Review:

"[A]n intelligent first novel--poignant and thoughtful--from a writer to watch."

Kirkus

Review:

"Rachel isn't always a likable girl, but we sympathize with her plight....The book is compelling throughout. Abraham's unadorned prose (appropriate to Rachel's straightforward personality) cuts right to the conflicts. THE ROMANCE READER is a good example of how suspense can arise simply from passionate characters. If the ending is a bit too ambiguous to satisfy us, that's in part because we don't want to leave Rachel without knowing everything that happens to her for the rest of her life."

Donna Levin, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 08/13/1995

Book Description: Riverhead Books, New York, 1995. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Second Printing. 296 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Like New. FICTION. The world Pearl Abraham opens for us is both tantalizingly foreign and suprisingly familiar, its customs and laws at once comforting and restrictive. With apparent ease she has masterfully re-created the tensions and dilemmas that an individual must face within any community. Her extraordinary heroine, whose desire to be good is at constant odds with her impulse to sin, will live long after the book is closed, and her subject of blossoming female desire in a world that does not recognize unmarried sexual longing will resonate strongly with women of all backgrounds. (Key Words: Fiction, Pearl Abraham, Hasidic Jews). book. Bookseller Inventory # 60376X1
