Eliza Bloom has a list of rules: long, blue skirt on Thursdays, dinner with mother on Fridays, and never give your heart away to the wrong person. Nothing is out of place in her ordered life…
Then she met someone who she was never supposed to speak to. And he introduced her to a whole world of new lists:
New foods to try – oysters and sushi
Great movies to watch – Bambi and Some Like It Hot
Things I love about Eliza Bloom
Eliza left everything she knew behind for him, but sometimes love just isn’t enough. Especially when he opens a hidden shoebox and starts asking a lot of questions about her past life. As the walls Eliza has carefully constructed threaten to come crashing down, will she find a way to keep hold of everyone she loves, and maybe, just maybe, bring the two sides of her heart together at last?
An uplifting and heartbreaking novel about finding yourself, perfect for fans Jojo Moyes, The Hideaway and P.S. I Love You.
The path of religion and love can find many bumps in the road and this book beautifully highlights the joys and losses one can face when following your heart. Beth Miller creates a heartwarming story that envelopes you into the world of Eliza Bloom and allows you to quietly observe her trials and tribulations to be with the one she loves.
Judaism is not just a religion but a way of life and with that comes many responsibilities which to the outside eye may seem strict and restricting. Eliza has to make the hardest decision of her life and this book portrays the importance of love, family and the bond that ties the two together. This is a moving piece that will open your eyes and your heart. I loved taking this journey with Eliza and feel enlightened and privileged for the experience.
