    1. The first thing I had to do upon finishing this work of art was to update my list of favorite books to include the Origin of Sorrow. I can not say I am speechless after reading this novel. On the contrary, my mind, my heart, my very soul have been set on fire. Words and thoughts and feelings have erupted in a most welcome display of gratitude for having had the opportunity to experience this book. Even now sitting here hours later and attempting to write a review my head is still swirling with i [...]


    2. A very powerful book about the jewish getto of Judengasse in Frankfurt in 1700s. Especially enjoyed the historical aspect of what was happening In America with the fight for independence, in Britain where Prince Wilhelm kidnapped the hessons to fight against the Americans all going on while Jews struggled in Judengasse. I was inspired by the famous Moses Mendelsson a German Jewish philosopher to whose ideas enlightned the eighteen and 19 centures. 5 stars


    3. WOW!! I loved it! A well written novel which takes place in the Judengasse (ghetto) in Frankfurt, Germany in the 1770's and tells the story of the beginnings of the Rothschild dynasty. Love stories, highway robbery, adultery, controversy over a school for girls, investments from American Revolution money, a debate with Moses Mendelssohn – all these are part of the dramatic novel The Origin of Sorrow by Robert Mayer. Although this is a work of fiction there is so much historical fact which real [...]


    4. This book has just been published in a new edition. Other writers have called it a masterpiece monumental wonderful. I of course agree, since I wrote it.



    5. Outstanding and compelling. A wonderful book.I had no idea that from 1462 for around 315 years the Jews of Frankfurt were encased by walls in overcrowded cobbled streets and narrow houses less than three metres across. Here in the Judengasse where the gate was locked on Sundays, and there were guards posted on the outer walls, entire trapped generations lived and worked and died. In this place where the sun doesn't reach and a stinking sewage trench runs through the main lane, live many complex [...]


    6. I'd give the story 4.5 stars, but the writing 2.5 stars. Could have been a home run book, but the writing was simplistic and trite.


    7. The author reports that, while reading about the founding members of the Rothschild dynasty, he became interested in what the first Mrs. Rothschild must have been like. He couldn’t find out much about her, so he decided to write the book on her himself. She definitely had to have been a fascinating character to have been the devoted wife of such a towering figure in history, as well as the influential mother of sons whose financial prowess could make or break kings and countries. The story tak [...]


    8. I really enjoyed reading this historical novel and highly recommend it. It is tremendously absorbing, as well as enlightening - artistically reviving an interesting, not widely known part of Jewish History. It is also a very fine piece of literature. Amongst the merits of this novel I shall mention the ones that impressed me most: Both narration and dialogue are often characterized by a witty sense of humor that is delicately combined with compassion, probably influenced by the great Sholem Alei [...]


    9. I just had a lovely time reading this well researched historical novel set in the 18th century Jewish Ghetto of Frankfurt. Its main characters the Rothchilds whose children would be among the most wealthy bankers of Europe. It has everything I enjoy in a novel- history, a spirited female protagonist, a good story and wonderful writing.
