Rue des Rosiers
Sarah is the youngest of the three Levine sisters. At twenty-five, she is rudderless, caught in a paralysis which keeps her from seizing her own life.
When Sarah is fired from her Toronto job, a chance stay in Paris opens her up to new direction and purpose.
But when she reads the writing on the wall above her local MÃ©tro subway station, "death to the Jews", shadows from childhood rise again. And as her path crosses that of Laila, a young woman living in an exile remote from the luxuries of 1980s Paris, Sarah stumbles towards to an act of terrorism that may realize her childhood fears.
