Narrator Suzanne Toren employs her considerable vocal talent to help listeners view America's history through the lens of the female Jewish experience. The work begins in 1654 with the first arrivals and spans more than 350 years. Toren's steady voice and empathetic tone, clear diction, and comfortable pacing engage listeners with this survey of the personal stories of generations of American Jewish women--from writer Emma Lazarus and social activist Hannah G. Solomon to the forgotten inspirational suffragist Ernestine Potowski Rose, and many others. Contributions to social activism and shifts in domestic culture predominate in this volume. Toren's exemplary pronunciation of the vocabulary of Jewish rituals and customs adds authenticity. This audiobook should inspire some listeners to further inquiry. M.J.
