Summary On Division Avenue In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Surie Eckstein is soon to be a great-grandmother. Her ten children range in age from thirteen to thirty-nine. Her in-laws, postwar immigrants from Romania, live on the first floor of their house. Her daughter Tzila Ruchel lives on the second. Surie and Yidel, a scribe in such demand that he makes only a few Torah scrolls a year, live on the third. Into this life of counted blessings comes a surprise: Surie is pregnant at age fifty-seven. She feels exposed and ashamed, and she is unable to share the news, even with her husband. For the first time in her life, she has a secret that slowly separates her from the community.
