Tolstoy Lied by Rachel Kadish was sent to me as a release copy to help spread the word of its publication. Although I am not a fan of fiction, I did enjoy reading this compelling story of a female professor challenging Tolstoy's famous maxim:
"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way"
The main character, Tracy Farber, take this statement head on. Much of the book follows her quest for love in the midst of striving for professional satisfaction. Her story is interesting to follow, and most women will be able to find at least a part of themselves in Tracy Farber.
I recommend this book to women who enjoy fiction, especially intellectual fiction and good literature. The book is well written and a pleasurable read!
