More About The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish
 
 
 
Overview
"A gifted writer, astonishingly adept at nuance, narration, and the politics of passion."--Toni Morrison

"Astonishing . . . The riveting narrative and well-honed characters will earn a place in readers' hearts."--Library Journal, starred review

"Like A.S. Byatt's Possession . . . deeply moving."--New Republic

Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, The Weight of Ink is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.

When Helen is summoned by a former student to view a cache of newly discovered seventeenth-century Jewish documents, she enlists the help of Aaron Levy, an American graduate student as impatient as he is charming, and embarks on one last project: to determine the identity of the documents' scribe, the elusive "Aleph."

Electrifying and ambitious, The Weight of Ink is about women separated by centuries--and the choices and sacrifices they must make in order to reconcile the life of the heart and mind.
