19 year-old Chani lives in the ultra-orthodox Jewish community of North West London. She has never had physical contact with a man, but is bound to marry a stranger. The rabbi's wife teaches her what it means to be a Jewish wife, but Rivka has her own questions to answer.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013.

Buried secrets, fear and sexual desire bubble to the surface in a story of liberation and choice; not to mention what happens on the wedding night.

About the Author

Eve Harris was born to Israeli-Polish parents in Chiswick, West London, in 1973.

She returned to London in 2002 to resume teaching at an all girls’ Catholic convent school. ‘The Marrying of Chani Kaufman’ was inspired by her final year of teaching at an all girls’ ultra-Orthodox Jewish school in North West London.
