Mary Sharratt recommends
Beyond the Ghetto Gates (2020)
Michelle Cameron
"Michelle Cameron’s powerful novel Beyond the Ghetto Gates is a passionately compelling saga of an ancient way of life on the threshold of radical change. Young Mirelle longs to dedicate her life to running her aging father’s workshop, but her rabbi forbids her on account of her sex. Chafing against the constraints of both her gender and the suffocating strictures of the Ancona ghetto, Mirelle sees no way forward but dutiful marriage. Yet Napoleon’s armies, sweeping across Europe, threaten to change her way of life forever."
