Sotah Ragen, Naomi St. Martin's Press (2009) Table of Contents Title Page Foreword Part One Chapter one Chapter two Chapter three Chapter four. Sotah-called in Hebrew And to your husband shall be your desire, based on the verse from Genesis-became a literary phenomenon in Israel, leading bestseller lists for over 92 weeks. The experience of finally reaching my Israeli neighbors and friends made a lasting and unique impression upon me, giving me a sense of truly having set down deep and permanent roots in the country and culture I had chosen as home.

When my daughter Bracha decided to sell her apartment in Modi’in, a small city between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and move to a spacious corner house in Elkana, one of the first settlements over the so-called Green Line, no ideology or nefarious government scheme played any part in her decision.

Her whole body felt like lead. She was so tired, so incredibly, achingly tired. A heaviness that started at the top of her head pressed down, compressing her sinuses and making her temples pound. A heaviness that started at the top of her head pressed down, compressing her sinuses and making her temples pound arms felt weighted, her thighs and calves ached. The baby’s cries became more insistent. With tremendous effort she raised her head. A strong wave of nausea enveloped her. She groped to the bathroom, heaving miserably. Nothing came out. Nothing could come out. She had been too nauseated to eat for days no. virus, she told herself, giving herself hope

Husbands are not totally clueless about how women think and regularly talk Torah with their wives. And most of all, the heroine's deportation to America simply would not happen.

Naomi Ragen has written a very enjoyable, readable story. Rather than detailing the story, it is quite interesting account of the limited world of the "Haredi" in Israel and their hold on their people, No character, except Noach is left without showing different sides to their character. As a Secular Jew I am always disturbed by the rigidity of the Ultraorthodox. Yet, Dina's husband Judah is the most loveable character in this book. Stalked by the "Morals Police", an underground group, both Dina and Judah suffer. Some, would like you to believe that these vigilante groups do not exist, but they do, both in Israel and Brooklyn, the bastion, of the Ultraorthodox in this country. It is well worth reading. Interesting and informative.

What can I say? Three completely different sisters who have one thing in common: marriage. Such different experiences though. Each character is so real. I can visualize them. Feel them even. Gotta read this great story.

This book was pretty interesting. I picked it up because I wanted to learn more about the life of ultra-orthodox Jewish women. Although I am Jewish, their lives could not be more different from mine. Naomi Ragen, the author, is Orthodox herself and seemed very knowledgeable about the community.

The book centers on Dinah, the second daughter of a family of modest means. In the ultra-orthodox community, girls' go through arranged marriages in their late teens. The best "catches" among the men are talmudic scholars. Thus, a lucky woman has to work very hard supporting herself, her husband, and her inevitably large family (due to lack of birth control). These "catches" also expect a large dowry from the bride's family - often an apartment, perhaps a car, and a contribution to income. To an outsider it is a miserable existence.

Dinah, who is very pretty, eventually marries after the disappointment about being turned down by her first choice because her family was not wealthy. The man she married was not a scholar, but a successful carpenter/business man who could support her. Dinah was dissatsfied and disappointed by her low status. She was also very lonely and possibly had Post Partum Depression. Eventually she starts an inappropriate relationship with a man. When she is found out she is banished to New York. Eventually Dinah redeems herself. In the meantime, her perspective on the lives of Americans outside of her ultra-Orthodox bubble is amusing.

The storyline is interesting as is the subject matter. Unfortunately, Ragen is not a great writer. Her characters felt a little flat to me. However, the storyline and the intersting information about the ultra-Orthodox community compensate for the weak writing.

I LOVED this book! Seriously it is one of THE BEST books I have ever read. I did not want it to end. It is so well written. I love that Ms. Ragen had Hebrew words throughout the book. I loved the strength of the main character, Dina. Thank you, thank you, Ms. Ragen. I have read most of your books but this one is my very favorite (so far :-)

Sotah was a great read. It allows the reader to peek into a sect of Jewish culture without being judgmental of that sect. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to know more about their Jewish heritage. Like any culture, there are many differing groups within it and each has its own interpretation of what it means to be a member of that culture. This book delves into one group within the tribe.

My wife and I read this for our Temple Or Hadash book club and went to the discussion of the book two days ago. The reviewer that night did a great job, the book sparked lots of memories and we all agreed it was a wonderful book and a glimpse into a different world that offered many surprises.
Put this on your list; it's long, but an easy read and well worth your time.
Love this book! Very insightful and thought provoking examining the paradigms that we live our lives by in a very engaging well written story with characters you care about. Probably the most enjoyable and worthwhile piece of contemporary fiction I have read in some time.
