Woman of Valor

What would you do if you had a second chance at first love?

Sally Lieberman chose to become an Orthodox Jew in her twenties because it was comforting, calming and full of community and family. It didn’t hurt that religious observance brought her to the man of her dreams—her patient, sexy husband, Barry.

Ten years in, Sally has everything she ever wanted, a passionate marriage with three children and a best friend she can count on. She loves everything about her chosen life.

Until her son is abused at school, and she’s shocked by her husband’s response. That’s when Sally’s first love finds her online and wants her back—something she dreamed about long before she became a religious wife.

It would be easy to abandon the community that is abandoning her—but she’s not the same person she was when she first fell in love with John. Sally is caught between two worlds. Can she give up the life she’s built with Barry?

Experience the sensory-rich, food-filled Orthodox community of Skokie, Illinois in WOMAN OF VALOR, and step inside Sally Lieberman’s loving family along with her often-difficult, yet surprisingly-inspiring way of life—even when everything seems stacked against her.
