Outside World by Tova Mirvis
Book DescriptionTzippy Goldman was born for marriage. She and her mother had always assumed she d graduate high school, be set up with the right boy, and have a beautiful wedding with white lace and pareve vanilla cream frosting. But at twenty-two, Tzippy s fast approaching spinsterhood. She dreams of escape; instead, she leaves for a year in Jerusalem.There she meets re-meets Baruch, the son of her mother s college roommate. When Tzippy last saw him, his name was Bryan and he wore a Yankees-logo yarmulke. Now he has adopted the black hat of the ultra-orthodox, the tradition in which Tzippy was raised. Twelve weeks later, they re engaged...and discovering that desire and tradition, devotion and individuality aren t the easiest balance. Hilarious, compassionate, and tremendously insightful, The Outside World illuminates an insular community, marvelously depicting that complicated blend of faith, love, and family otherwise known as life in a modern world."
