This Month’s Book: Hush By Eishes Chayil

Filed under: Hush,What is next?? — susanbright @ 11:05 am

Everyone is talking about Hush!  Hush takes place in a Chassidic community in Borough Park, New York.  A community where children are sheltered from the evils of the outside world. A world where marriages are arranged and girls do not learn about sex until their wedding night.  Gittel and Devory are best friends. While attending a sleep over at Devory’s house Gittel witnesses Devory’s brother doing something to Devory under the covers. Although she does not fully understand what she is seeing, she senses that it is wrong and ultimately the event drives Devory to take her own life. No one talks about what happened and Devory’s family moves away. Years later, seventeen year old Gittel is still haunted by what happened to her friend and the fact that no one would acknowledge what caused Devory to take her own life.  Please join us in reading this gripping story!
