Shivah By Lisa Solod Cover Image

Shivah (Paperback)

Usually Arrives at Kepler's in 3-14 Days


When Leah's mother is diagnosed with Alzheimer's it becomes clear that there will be no reconciliation with the woman who has played a big and dangerous role in her life. As Leah chronicles her mother's descent into nothingness, she both mourns and recreates the life her mother might have led. In the process, she paints the portrait of a wife and mother who struggled to raise a family, who had contentious mother-daughter relationships with her children, and a woman who struggled with mental health and addiction: A complicated human being who was loved.

Shivah, constructed in seven parts to mimic the seven days of shivah, the Jewish period of mourning wherein the mourners enter the home of the bereaved and sit and pray with them, contains a spiritual and emotional journey marked by joy, happiness, peace, true knowledge and, ultimately, understanding.
