Leah Vincent, Cut Me Loose: Sin and Salvation After My Ultra-Orthodox Girlhood
She wanted to go to college as well as have children. She thought she could have male friends whom she might not marry. Those desires put Leah at odds with her Yeshivish family, who cut off all contact with her. It is painful to read Leah Vincent’s account of going it alone in New York City, especially the descriptions of her destructive sexual relationships. But I credit her honesty and her willingness to explain her own experience to others who face similar turmoil.
