Brooklyn Love:

4 STARS! “Levy’s endearing debut novel … A funny, deeply affecting comedy of manners and marriage.” —Kirkus Book Reviews

4 STARS! “Levy gives an introspective look into the life of Orthodox Jews and their beliefs as seen through the eyes of women entering adulthood. Quite informative, it relays the angst of these women who feel as if they have no control over their lives but are striving to have a normal existence.” — Romantic Times Book Reviews

“The intertwined stories flow, the writing is lovely, and this book will be valued by older teen readers and their mothers.” — Association of Jewish Libraries

“In Brooklyn Love, maternal monsters run amok as they plot and contrive to marry off their daughters. Ms. Levy, with her gift for laugh-out-loud dialogue, gently lampoons the status-seekers, the greedy and the sanctimonious, and makes you ache for the plump and pious Jewish maidens who can only pray for a miracle. Brooklyn Love is a riot!” —Ruchama King, author of SEVEN BLESSINGS

“Levy writes with a light touch and an authentic sensitivity to the unique nuances of Jewish life.” —Anna Levine, author of FREEFALL
