The daughter of Jewish refugees who had fled the pogroms of Tsar Nicholas I, Michele Guinness was brought up to love all the traditions and rituals of her Jewish culture. But in her teens she felt something was lacking. Searching for answers would lead her to a destination she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams-a marriage to Peter Brewer (great-great-grandson of Arthur Guinness), who shocked Michele\'s family by opting to become an Anglican minister. “I had visions of awful hats, of running women\'s meetings, and organizing rummage sales.” Michele\'s amusing autobiography, studded with vivid anecdotes, describes her spiritual journey as she struggles to make sense of being both Jewish and Christian, adapting-not abandoning-her rich heritage to life as the vicar\'s somewhat unusual wife in a Church of England parish.
