Passover in my family has always been a time to get together with friends and family, enjoy dinner and each other’s company, and reflect on our Jewish history. So when Read it Forward asked me to put together a Passover reads list, I started thinking about books about Jewish history, family, and of course, the seder itself.
My own novels fit into this category: Margot, which reimagines Anne Frank’s sister in post-war America and The Hours Count, which reimagines the years leading up to Ethel Rosenberg’s execution from the point of view of a fictional neighbor. And my upcoming novel, The Lost Letter, (out June 13th) can definitely be pre-ordered for Passover! It’s the story of a mysterious love letter that connects generations of Jewish families, spanning decades and continents.
These are some other great Jewish-themed books that would make perfect Passover reads.
