Welcome to all my readers, old and new ones. Those who are fans of my first two books (Flying Out of Brooklyn and Sown in Tears) know that I like to write about the problems facing everyday women in extraordinary situations, especially in past history. Even in the most constrained communities, women have been using and trying to expand their powers to confront the problems of life. But they all yearn for something better, something infused with beauty and hopefully love.
I never intended to continue the story of Leah Peretz, heroine of Sown in Tears, but a reader questioned “what happens next to her?” and the question haunted me until I started my new book Where Do I Go. I hope you agree with me, that it is a worthwhile journey that also illuminates a period of history which is worthwhile understanding.
