This is an exquisite, wondrously crafted book. Much more than a novel, The Convert blends fiction and the history of actual 11th Century biographical documents of Norman noblewoman Vigdis, who defied society, faith and family to marry the son of a Rabbi for love. These documents were lost until their rediscovery in 1969, found in a deep well called "God's Oubliette " where certain documents no longer in circulation are consigned. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
