Congregation Torat El


Meet The Author – Anna Solomon
Author of Leaving Lucy Pear
In 1917 Beatrice Haven, the unwed teenage daughter of wealthy Jewish industrialists, abandons her newborn baby at the foot of a pear tree, and watches as the mother of a large Irish Catholic family claims the baby as her own. Ten years later, their paths cross and the two women begin a complex relationship that explores issues of motherhood, feminism, religion, reality, infidelity and the decisions people make to protect those they love.
Anna Solomon is a critically acclaimed author, a two-time winner of the Pushcart Prize, and a finalist for the New England Society Book Award. She previously worked as a journalist for National Public Radio and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
