Tamar Finegold is twenty-one years old, the happy bride of a rising young Rabbi in one of Brooklyn's insulated, ultra-Orthodox communities. But her secure, predictable existence is brought to an abrupt end when she is raped by an intruder.
Rather than risk the unbearable stigma, the threat to her marriage, that could result from telling the truth, Tamar silently hides her shame. However, her confused decision explodes into a terrible moral dilemma when she discovers she is pregnant and cannot be sure who the father is. In the end she makes the only choice she can…
For years Tamar believes she made the right decision – until a shocking, undreamed of turn of events finally forces her to confront her past, once and for all.
