Sotah Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Sotah

Dinah is growing up as part of an ultra-religious Jewish community. She is married to Judah in an arranged marriage and feels some disdain for him because he is only a carpenter. When her mother passes away, her longings get the better of her and she embarks on a hidden and deeply guilty semi-affair with another man. She is found out by the religious 'morality patrol' and ordered to leave the only world she knows in Jerusalem for New York. She lives as a maid with a Jewish family there and learns more about the real world then she ever wanted to know. This helps her to make a decision to get her old life back through a strength she never knew she had.
