    Eliza Naumann, a seemingly unremarkable 9-year-old, expects never to fit into her gifted family: her autodidact father, Saul, absorbed in his study of Jewish mysticism; her brother, Aaron, the vessel of his father's spiritual ambitions; and her brilliant but distant lawyer-mom, Miriam. But when Eliza sweeps her school and district spelling bees in quick succession, Saul takes it as a sign that she is destined for greatness.

    Cathy says: "Fascinating concept but something missing"
    "Dysfunctional Family"
    Overall

    Having never heard of the author or the book, I was bowled over by this book. This is a story of an observant Jewish family and the stresses of everyday life upon all of them.

    From the point of view of every member of the family, one gets to see how much is going on which is never communicated to the other members of the family.

    I was also highly impressed with the imagery which Myla Goldberg brings to this novel. She is a master of the English language.

    I recommend this very highly.
