Reviews
2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist in Relationships (Non-Fiction) "Interwoven with the story of Gendler's great-aunt and illustrated with family photographs, the author's story offers an intimate and interesting . . . look at one woman's life choices and their outcomes . . . [a] candid and heartfelt memoir."
-Kirkus

-Redbook Magazine

"Jumping Over Shadows is a timely and thought-provoking book, one that I urge people of all faiths and backgrounds to read and reread."
-Windy City Reviews

"Gendler skillfully integrates the history of her family, which she meticulously researched, with her own modern love story."
