Reviews

"Francine Klagsbrun's resplendently transfiguring biography of Hadassah founder Henrietta Szold will illumine and excite and wake and shake you to a new understanding of a remarkable woman of valor."--Cynthia Ozick, author of Critics, Monsters, Fanatics, and Other Literary Essays

"Compelling and engrossing, Klagsbrun's portrait is particularly impressive in integrating the personal elements of Szold's life with her professional and public activities and immense and enduring achievements, thereby creating a holistic picture of this extraordinary woman."--Rabbi David Ellenson, author of Jewish Meaning in a World of Choice: Studies in Tradition and Modernity
