Search for Love!,
This review is from: The Rabbi's Daughter: Sex, Drugs and Orthodoxy (Hardcover)
I think that Reva is incredibly brave. I am sure this book will help many people to realize that they are not alone in their feelings of being lost. The feeling that finding love will fix them and the relentless search for love which ends up by taking them to such depths of despair and dark places. The necessity to numb feelings and emotions, the fight to survive.
I laughed till I cried, and I cried with identification and pain.
How sad to go through childhood yearning for love and affection, how tragic the search becomes for love (when we feel unlovable) when we become adults. This was so graphically described in this book. The tragedies and the recovery. A good lesson.
