The story itself might seem a little to predictable, but the twists and turns (even at their least surprising) highlight the main motive of the book, and helps its core message clearer.
I wouldn't have bothered writing this review except for one fabrication that I find truly horrific and which was mentioned by several of the reviewers. There is no such thing as a "modesty patrol" or vigilante "morals police" in the Jewish community and violence, threatened or otherwise especially against a woman, would evoke nothing but condemnation. It is also relevant that for various religious and religious-legal reasons there is no such thing as a Sotah in the modern world so the title is little more than a provocation.
If you like well written, emotional, women's stories (I do not mean that in any derisive way) this book fits the bill. But please, don't think that you can learn something meaningful about the topic it purports to cover.
