Summary Uncovered 108 To become a Hasidic Jew then plumbs the nuances of her arranged marriage fundamentalist faith and Hasidic motherhood as her creative sexual and spiritual longings shimmer beneath the surface. Original review at www125pagescomI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review4 StarsLeah Lax is the perfect Hasidic woman Teaching young believers and speaking at conferences while raising her seven children some would say her life was ideal But as Leah ages she feels less sure of her place in both her life and her religion Taking control of her future is scary heart wrenching and freeing Learning to become true to herself is the heart of this journeyI was initially unsure of a memoir written by an ex Hasidic Jew as that is a religion that does not seem oppressive to me so I feared it would drag However I am glad I read it Leah s life as it unfolds from a young college student in an arranged marriage to a strong women who follows her heart is a great journey Diving into the intricacies of daily life shaped by religion and the men who interpret it Unbound offers a uniue view of an old religion melded into the modern era Leah s triumph merging her life as a woman of faith and a mother with her coming to terms with herself and eventually coming out made for a powerful story At times the story was slow but the telling was crisp and the emotions true I highly recommend Uncovered for a different kind of summer read
