Synopsis: In the close knit Syrian Jewish community of Manchester England in the years before World War II the men made and enforced the rules Sons were expected to go into their father s business daughters to remain with their mothers until they married But Irene Gunther the teenage daughter of a conservative cotton merchant wanted more than marriage and a family In Only A Girl a touching and compelling memoir she chronicles her struggle for identity as she is torn between the traditional world she was born into and the broader English world with its promise of freedom This book also recalls the colorful vibrant community built by the Jews from Aleppo where the food was spicy the pastries were sweet and the manners were formal Transplanted to the north of England the Syrian Jews recreated their exotic Middle Eastern world speaking Arabic on the street and centering their lives around their businesses their extended families and their Saturday morning worship in synagogue Today their community has all but disappeared In Only a Girl Irene Gunther brings it to life again
