Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature Best Book (nominee)
Now in paperback, the inventive, lushly imagined debut novel reminiscent of The Tiger's Wife and The History of Love that explores the intersections of family secrets, Jewish myths, the legacy of war and history, and the bonds between sisters Sisters Marjorie and Holly are best friends until Holly converts to a mysterious Jewish sect and marries a controlling man Marjorie despises. When Holly announces she's expecting her first child, Marjorie fears that she's lost her sister forever.But then Marjorie discovers their late grandfather Eli's notebook and its tale about a wizard named the White Rebbe and his struggle against the Angel of Losses, protector of the lost letter of the alphabet, which completes the secret name of God. Everything Marjorie thought she knew about her family comes undone. To learn the truth, she embarks on an odyssey that will lead her deep into the past and back to the present and finally to her estranged sister, Holly, whom she must save from the consequences of Eli's secrets.Interweaving history, theology, and both real and imagined Jewish folktales, The Angel of Losses is a family story of what lasts, and of what we can and cannot escape."
