Summary
<b>WINNER OF A NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD<br /> A <i>USA TODAY</i> BESTSELLER<br /><br /> "A gifted writer, astonishingly adept at nuance, narration, and the politics of passion."—Toni Morrison</b><br /><br /> Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, <i>The Weight of Ink</i> is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an&#xa0;emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.&#xa0;<br /> &#xa0;<br /> When Helen is summoned by a former student to view a cache of newly discovered seventeenth-century Jewish documents, she enlists the help of Aaron Levy,&#xa0;an American graduate student as impatient as he is charming, and embarks on one last project: to determine the identity of the documents' scribe, the elusive "Aleph."<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;<br /> Electrifying and ambitious,&#xa0;<i>The Weight of Ink</i> is about women separated by centuries—and the choices and sacrifices they must make&#xa0;in order to reconcile the life of the heart and mind.&#xa0;&#xa0;
