Rachel is the youngest and most beautiful daughter of medieval Jewish scholar Salomon Ben Isaac, known as “Rashi.” Her father’s favorite and adored by her new husband, Eliezer, Rachel’s life looks to be one of peaceful scholarship, laughter and love. But events beyond her control will soon threaten everything she holds dear. Marauders of the First Crusade massacre nearly the entire Jewish population of Germany and her beloved father suffers a stroke. Eliezer wants their family to move to the safety of Spain, but Rachel is determined to stay in France and help her family save the Troyes' yeshiva, the only remnant of the great centers of Jewish learning in Europe.
 
In Rachel, Maggie Anton continues to vividly brings to life the world of 11th-century France and remarkable Jewish women of dignity, passion and strength.
