I found this book a breeze to read. It is the brief memoir of a woman raised in a Yeshivish community and her desire for a life different than that her religion commands. As a gentile who grew up surrounded by an Orthodox and Lubavitch community, I found the story familiar but still interesting. Vincent's story also parallels those who have left Amish or polygamist communities. The restrictions on women always seem about the same. If the rigid roles do not fit, the exit is always painful and awkward.
