December’s Book Club book is:
The Harem Midwife
By Roberta Rich
Two years ago we read a wonderfully interesting novel about a Jewish woman who was a midwife in Venice.  It is quite the coincidence, that Roberta Rich, the author of that book, has just come out with a sequel to that book called The Harem Midwife.  I think that this December, two years later, we will all enjoy catching up with Hannah and Isaac Levi, in exile from Venice, as they begin life anew in Constantinople.  Hannah continues her vocation as a midwife, this time in the Sultan's harem, and Isaac works in the silk trade.  Of course, life is never a straight line, and we will follow the twists and turns of Hannah's and Isaac's lives. We will meet Tuesday, December 9 at 7:30 PM.
