A Riv­er Could Be a Tree: A Memoir

The seventh of 11 children, Angela grew up in southern Indiana in an apocalyptic, doomsday Christian faith. Attempting to understand the church’s strict tenets, she went to Israel in college. Instead of strengthening her Christian faith, her time in Israel made her question Christianity itself. She ultimately converted to Judaism and now lives in New York City with her family.

Angela Himsel’s writ­ing has appeared in The New York Times, the Jew­ish Week, the For­wardand else­where. Her mem­oir is list­ed in the 23 Best New Mem­oirs at bookau​thor​i​ty​.org. She is pas­sion­ate about her chil­dren, Israel, the Canaan­ites and chocolate.
