Fitted Pieces


Fitted Pieces is the unforgettable story of Maeve's transformations in thinking and self-discovery. The reader will experience the process of cultural assimilation through the eyes of a child, the calling to religious life and the struggle to leave, embracing a gay lifestyle in New York City in the 70s and converting to Reform Judaism in later years. Colorful characters invite an understanding of the power and influence of family, the search for authenticity and love and the maturation of religious thinking. Intimate historical vignettes illustrate behind the scenes glimpses into hidden worlds. Published by Amazon KDP, 2018.
