Woman of Valor by Lynne Golodner:  Sally Sterling never intended to embrace the Judaism of her ancestors, but after her first love and Catholic college sweetheart broke her heart, the surprising salve for her sadness appears when she stumbles into the Orthodox community of Skokie, Illinois.  Ten years later, Sally is a mother of three, married to Barry Lieberman, the love of her life, and enamored with the routine and beauty of her religious lifestyle.  But when her eldest son suffers abuse at school, she is jarred by her husband’s response.  And that’s exactly when her lost college love finds her online, providing a convenient escape from her troubles.  Suddenly, everything is falling apart, and Sally can’t find any reprieve, or resolution – not even hitting the trails for her favorite runs along Lake Michigan.  Will she lose the happy life she’s worked so hard to build, or could this shakeup be just what she needs to finally define her life for herself?
Woman of Valor is a fictional story about the courage to love the ordinary and seek satisfaction where you are, while shedding the need to please others.
