The Weight of Ink

Written by Rachel Kadish | Narrated by Corrie James
When a collection of 17th-century Jewish documents is discovered, historian Helen and graduate student Aaron race to identify the scribe, uncovering a rich history of decisions and sacrifices. An award-winning bestseller from an author “astonishingly adept at nuance, narration, and the politics of passion” (Toni Morrison).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, The Weight of Ink is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.As the novel opens, Helen has been summoned by a former student to view a cache of seventeenth-century Jewish documents newly discovered in his home during a renovation. Enlisting the help of Aaron Levy, an American graduate student as impatient as he is charming, and in a race with another fast-moving team of historians, Helen embarks on one last project: to determine the identity of the documents’ scribe, the elusive “Aleph.”Electrifying and ambitious, sweeping in scope and intimate in tone, The Weight of Ink is a sophisticated work of historical fiction about women separated by centuries, and the choices and sacrifices they must make in order reconcile the life of the heart and mind.
