9780002252362: The Sacrifice of Tamar

Tamar Feingold's life is haunted by the painful, yet unspoken memories of her parents time in a Nazi concentration camp. Battling between her feelings and her religion, the secrets of her past threaten to explode and destroy everything she has.

From the Back Cover:

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.

Naomi Ragen is an American novelist who has lived in Jerusalem for more than twenty years. Her first novel, 'Jephte's Daughter', was published to great acclaim, and was followed by her second novel, 'A Woman Under Suspicion'. 'The Sacrifice of Tamar' is her third novel.

'A compelling and heartbreaking novel. Devastating, electric, and illuminating, it held me, moved me, and gave me insight into a mysterious and demanding way of life'
IRIS RAINER DART

'I thoroughly enjoyed 'The Sacrifice of Tamar' as a fascinating glimpse into a little-known world'
JACQUELINE BRISKIN
