Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a splendid book. Her essays combine pathos with humor, offer menus of thought for food and food for thought. Neither Pollyanna nor Cassandra, she offers us the courage to begin again, to love again, to hope again." -- Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, author of For Those Who Can't Believe.

From the Publisher

Marlene Adler Marks has a loyal and loving following and here's a book that shows why. Her essays are full of heart, and get to the heart of the matter; about family, community, spirituality. She's got the wit of Marion Winik and the wisdom of Anna Quindlen. Find out why so many have been clipping her columns for years.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I understand that we all have to earn a living, but why bore probably thousands of readers with this sappy, overly and uninspired attempt at sentimental writing? It seems obvious after reading this book that the author was just playing at readers' emotions in the pursuit of delving into our pocketbooks. The author scribbles a never ending ramble of events which have little or no relation to one another. While I respect the real life(???) tradgedies the author relates to the reader, I must say this book was for the most part, slow, daunting, uninspired/ing, and tiresome reading.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marlene's columns, beautifully written and powerfully presented, will touch the heart and soul of every reader. Each column is a story, one the reader can identify with and adopt in many ways as her own. The feelings of loss and love, growth and redemption jump off the page and into the reader's own consciousness. No one who reads this collection will feel like Marlene is a stranger, but rather that she is a dear friend who has the gift of putting deeply felt emotions into words each one of us can not only understand but identify with in a uniquely personal way. I have purchased mutliple copies of "A Woman's Voice" to give to each of my close friends. It is the best present I can think of for the people I love. Their lives, like mine, will be enriched by this wonderful book.

This book, a compilation of 12 years of Marlene Marks' columns for The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, is a warm, knowing companion. With careful attention to detail, honesty and openness, Marks shares her journey from her husband's death to the present. From her experiences dating again to how a single mom does Shabbat (a microwaved baked potato for her, four frozen fish sticks for her daughter), to coping with the holidays as a member of the sandwich generation, Marks reflects on contemporary life with wit and compassion. A pleasure to read and a lovely gift for any woman trying to cope with the pressures of work and family.

A deep spirituality shines through this book. I sincerely hope that many people read it. A Woman's Voice made this husband and father greatly appreciate my family's journey without the loss this author survives. Ms. Adler made me realize that it takes guts, compassion, wisdom and soul to continue the journey. Anger is an obtacle. It made me wonder if I have the same courage to go on. This book speaks from the heart of a gifted artist who has honed her craft. Buy it. Read it. Share it with friends and relatives.
