    MOBI Ø DOC Uncovered PaperbackFREE Ø LEAH LAX UncoveredI’ve always been curious to read the memoirs of people who leave a fundamental religious group to join the larger population I wonder about what life is like inside those ultra religious communities I also wonder how a person can come to leave everything she has known So when a GR friend listed this book on her “to read” list I contacted my library and reserved a copy This book differs from the others I’ve read in that the author was not born into a family living in a fundamentalist community Leah Lax was born in Texas to a family which was nominally Jewish but primarily secular She rebelled against her own family not because of their religious laxness no pun intended but because of their severe dys

    MOBI Ø DOC Uncovered PaperbackFREE Ø LEAH LAX UncoveredOriginal review at www125pagescomI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review4 StarsLeah Lax is the perfect Hasidic woman Teaching young believers and speaking at conferences while raising her seven children some would say her life was ideal But as Leah ages she feels less sure of her place in both her life and her religion Taking control of her future is scary heart wrenching and freeing Learning to become true to herself is the heart of this journeyI was initially unsure of a memoir written by an ex Hasidic Jew as that is a religion that does not seem oppressive to me so I feared it would drag However I am glad I read it Leah’s life as it unfolds from a young college student in an arranged m
