As a child, Chaya Deitsch felt that she didn’t belong in the Hasidic world into which she was born. She spent her teenage years outwardly conforming to but secretly rebelling against the rules that tell you what and when to eat, how to dress, whom you can befriend and what you must believe. As she navigated the complexities of her new life, Chaya and her parents eventually came to an understanding that was based on unqualified love and a hard won but fragile form of acceptance. With honesty, sensitivity and intelligence, Chaya movingly shows us that lives lived differently do not have to be lives lived apart.
