Sara Citron came from Texas with stars in her eyes. Edie Oppenheim came from Brooklyn with a glower and a frown -- and an air of mystery. The two fifteen-year-olds were in Montford, New York to attend the local Beth Jacob High School. They were classmates, fellow boarders at the affluent Rudin home, and part-time workers at the local shaatnez lab.
It should have been a teen-age idyll -- but it wasnt.
Something was troubling Edie, something deep. There was a dark secret in her life, and it clouded her relationship with the Rudins, with her schoolmates -- even her precious new friendship with Sara. What was it? Why did she leave home? Who was her anonymous telephone friend? Where did she disappear to?
And what was it about little Naftalis gift to Mrs. Rudin that seemed to shatter Edies world?
Choices are always hard, especially for teenagers away from home, struggling with dependency and the urge for freedom. In this book we enter the minds and hearts of Sara and Edie as they are forced to choose -- and we feel for them as each one feels the need for the other to help, to be a friend when only a friend has the right shoulder to lean on.
Miriam L. Elias knows people and she knows how to weave their stories. In this drama, tense with conflict and suspense, she proves once more that she is a master of her craft, as her protagonists sweep us along with their story. Her triumph is our gain in this richly rewarding book.
