Ten-year-old Thea's feelings of disconnection from her parents and sister are cemented when her mother slaps her for trying on her wedding dress, and it is not until she is an adult and acquires eight letters, from her grandmother to her grandmother's sister, that Thea begins to understand the truth about her family
Summary
Thea, a Jewish woman married to a non-Jewish man who feels disconnected from her family and her traditions, finds a cache of 1930s letters written in Yiddish by her grandmother concerning her parents troubled and secrecy-shrouded marriage
