The Breadgivers by Anna Yezierska
This masterwork of American immigrant literature is set in the 1920s on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and tells the story of Sara Smolinsky, the youngest daughter of an Orthodox rabbi who rebels against her father’s rigid conception of Jewish womanhood. Sarah’s struggle toward independence and self-fulfillment resonates with a passion all can share.
