Review   Publishers Weekly - June 22, 2009
"Offering a rare glimpse into a mysterious world, Polak-Sahm delves beneath the surface of the Jewish ritual bathhouse, known as the mikveh."
Review   BUST - August 1, 2009
“Whether or not you agree with the concept of a purity bath, you can find inspiration in the stories these women share about their experiences, in life and at the mikveh.”
Review   Feminist Review - August 14, 2009
“. . . informative and fascinating job Varda Polak-Sahm does in detailing a world many of us have no clue exists.”
Review   Spirituality & Practice - September 10, 2009
The House of Secrets is based on ten years of research in various mikvehs in Israel and expresses the views of an impressive crosscut of Jewish women, young and old, Moroccans and Yemenites, Sephardics and Ashkenazis. The result is a compelling examination of the nature and meaning of this ritual which has remained clouded with mystery and secrecy for centuries.”
Review   Jewish Book World - December 1, 2009
“The mysterious world of the female mikveh (ritual bath) is fully and reverentially revealed in The House of Secrets . . . Vivid . . . truly lifts the curtain on this world, often unknown to all but its participants . . . [A] captivating book.”
