From the author of The Power, winner of the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2017.
Disobedience is the debut novel by British author Naomi Alderman. First published in the UK in March 2006, the novel has since been translated into ten languages.
Disobedience follows a rabbi's bisexual daughter as she returns from New York to her Orthodox Jewish community in Hendon, London.
Ronit has left London and transformed her life. She has become a cigarette-smoking, wise-cracking, New York career woman, who is in love with a married man.
But when Ronit's father dies she is called back into the very different world of her childhood, a world she thought she had left far behind. The orthodox Jewish suburb of Hendon, north London is outraged by Ronit and her provocative ways. But Ronit is shocked too by the confrontation with her past. And when she meets up with her childhood girlfriend Esti, she is forced to think again about what she has left behind.

"This is a beautifully written book immersing the reader into world of North London’s Orthodox Jewish community. I enjoyed the biblical references, the complexity of Jewish faith and customs, but it was the relatable characters and believable storyline that made this novel shine." - Goodreads Review.
