Rashi's Daughters: Book One- Joheved by Maggie Anton
Author, Maggie Anton spoke about her research that went into writing her wonderful triology, "Rashi's Daughters". Ms. Anton also sold and signed her books.
In 1068, the scholar Salomon ben Isaac returns home to take over the family winemaking business and embark on a path that will indelibly influence the Jewish world—writing the first Talmud commentary, and teaching it to his daughters. Joheved, her mind and spirit awakened, knows the risk and keeps her learning hidden. When she weds, must she choose between marital happiness and her love of Talmud?
