This warm and engaging story, inspired by the author's own family, offers a glimpse into a life rich with tradition, celebration and love.

Meet the Rabinovitches: mischievous Yakov, bubbly Nomi, rebellious Miriam, solemn Shlomo, and seven more! Papa is a rabbi and their days are full of intriguing rituals and adventures. But the biggest adventure of all is when big sister Adina is told she is to be married at the age of fifteen - to someone she has never met.
Based on the author's real family, the Rabinovitches dance, laugh and cook their way through an extraordinary life in 1920s Poland.
In the classic tradition, this highly readable story is fascinating, engaging and as warm as freshly baked bread.

Enchanting Read

by (07/03/2016)

This book brims with real joy. The Family with Two Front Doors is the story of a Rabbi's family in 1920s Poland who are preparing for the wedding of their first daughter. The pages are filled with delights of cooking, dancing, laughter and feasting.

This is all told delicately through the gaze of the young children - mischievous Yakov, bubbly Nomi, rebellious Miriam, solemn Shlomo, and many more - who are oblivious to their isolated place in the wider world. They're too young to the feel anger and shame of discrimination because it's so normalised to them.

Right to the last page, this junior novel celebrates the real-life family of the author. A family of whom few would survive the Holocaust to follow.
