Against the Wind
A Novel – A Shadchan’s Story
Shadchanus. One of the hardest professions, but also one of the most rewarding.
What used to be a time-honored, sacred task has slowly transformed into a game of truth or dare, and Perla Greenwald, an old-school shadchan, is trapped between the winds of change. Rather than stand up to them, she bends like a reed and sacrifices her self-respect.
Until she is called to step up to the plate. Discovering a piece of information in her own daughter’s shidduch that had not been brought to light ignites a storm of indignation that threatens to engulf her entire family.
Join Perla, her devoted husband Yoelish, and Rafi the Driver as they struggle to untangle a devastating web of anguish and intrigue.
