From The Red Tent to The Ghost of Hannah Mendes, Jewish female writers have addressed relationships viewed against the canvas of a strong faith. Now newcomer Ruchama King gives voice to a fresh theme: how one/s relationship to Torah study within this religious community impacts romantic intimacy and marriage. This novel skilfully interweaves the lives of five Jews who have come to make new lives for themselves in the same neighbourhood. Each seeks the right match, and in finding it, realizes that there are many kinds of matches to be had-the match between singles, between husband and wife, between people and God.
