A wonderful book about three friends: Deborah and Daniel are a brother and sister of Jewish descent and Tim is an 'orphan with living parents' who grows up Irish-Catholic.
Deborah and Daniel's father is a prominent rabbi who assumes that his son will follow in his footsteps. Daniel breaks his father's heart when he decides not to become a rabbi and Deborah also breaks her father's heart when she decides to become one because it is expressly forbidden that a woman become a rabbi under Orthodox Judaism. Even more problems arise when Deborah and Tim, who is now working his way up the ladder of the Roman Catholic priesthood, fall in love.
