I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits

Faith and religion is very personal for many of us. We have a choice in what we believe and how we practice our faith. In our book club selection I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits, Atara and Mila are not given a choice. Their Satmar Hasidic faith is closely intertwined with their community and family. It is a way of life for these two women. Raised as sisters, the two choose divergent paths.

Today From Left to Right members discuss I Am Forbidden with their posts inspired by the novel:

I Am Forbidden (Hogart Press) is now available. Before you crack open the novel, check out a brief primer on Judaism and Satmar Hasidism written by book club member Robin of The Not Ever-Still Life.
