On Division

Written by: Goldie Goldbloom

This book was wonderfully written as it portrays the dilemma facing  an older woman who is pregnant and lives (on Division Street) within the circumscribed life of a Chassidic Community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Surie decides to keep her mid-life pregnancy secret while she examines how tightly woven and limited her choices are as a woman who lives within the confines of this judgemental world.  The author shows real compassion and understanding of Surie’s dilemma.
