“I fell in love... A thought-provoking work of art that tells an intimate and authentic story.” - Fanbolt

A young woman from Mexico City finds herself torn between her Jewish family and a forbidden love in this moving and insightful romance. Ariela is an independently-minded artist living with her family in a cloistered Jewish neighborhood. Pressured to find an appropriate suitor, serendipity leads to a passionate courtship with Ivan, a non-Jewish writer who shows her a world of possibilities beyond her sheltered life. As their feelings deepen, Ariela must weigh their unsanctioned relationship against rejection by her family and community, where religious values and traditions run deep.
