A very well-written memoir by a Canadian author who pursues her Jewish roots.
I really enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down
It was beautifully written, incredibly personal and so full of raw emotion.
I had never considered this type of conversion to Judaism and it was fascinating.
There were so many overlapping concepts and themes.
I usually love memoirs, so I was surprised when I didn't enjoy this one as much as I'd expected to. The book could easily have been as least 1/4 shorter. Her writing style also has a few quirks, that, if she'd used them less, would have made the book flow more easily (in my opinion).
This is a memoir from a period in Pick's life when she was suffering from depression, having a book published, having a child and converting to Judaism. Her conversion occurred after she learned of her family history and their hiding of their Jewish heritage after emigrating to Canada. Pick writes well with an authentic voice and she certainly exposes herself to the reader, but perhaps in too much detail (not everything is interesting) and as a consequence, the book is a little long.
So good. A soul-baring memoir of a crisis point in Pick's life, everything that happened during the year or two that she was seeking to convert to Judaism, after discovering that her father's family was in fact Jewish. The writing was excellent, beautiful imagery, unflinching honesty, and a truly memorable quest.
