Book Review: I am Forbidden – From Left to Write

For the May, From Left to Write offered us a chance to read

I am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits

As I struggled to gain control of my thoughts,

I thought you might appreciate watching.

So here are my thoughts on video.

I apologize in advance for the many movements of my head.

Close your eyes, listen to my voice, or imagine

you and I are sharing a cup of coffee

and discussing this book.

Thanks for viewing!

This post is inspired by I AM FORBIDDEN by Anouk Markovits. Though not sisters by blood but through their Hasidic faith, Mila and Atara views the rules and structure of their culture differently. Mila seeks comfort in the Torah while Atara searches for answers in secular literature she is forbidden to read. Ultimately each must make an irrevocable decision that will change their lives forever. Join From Left to Write on May 8 as we discuss I AM FORBIDDEN. As a member, I received a copy of the book for review purposes.
