A Price Above Rubies is the passionate, provocative tale of a young woman in a closed Hasidic community who discovers - and must come to grips with - the power of her own sexuality and individuality. Sonia's life has turned out exactly as her parents planned: she has married a young scholar and holy man, given birth to a baby boy and settled into a decent, spiritual life within a close-knit, Orthodox Jewish community in New York. Her role in this world is to care for her husband and look after her household -- a price she considers to be far above rubies.
Haunted by ghosts of deeply-buried passions, Sonia struggles to balance her family and community life with her newfound career in the jewelry business as she learns to define her own self-worth.
