As Close to Us as Breathing

Author: Elizabeth Poliner
Stars: 4
Review by: Brookhouse

A Jewish extended family at a beach cottage on the Connecticut shore which was inherited by three sisters. Ada with her three children, Vive with her beautiful teenage daughter and Bec, unmarried and a talented seamstress. The husbands, owners of a Small Jewish department store come only on weekends for the Friday night ceremonial dinner. During the week the women and children swim and sail and wait for the local ice cream man. When a tragedy strikes them, anger and fissures arise and all of them have their assumptions about religion and relationships challenged.
