In A Joyful Noise, Deborah Weisgall tells a moving story of her turbulent coming-of-age in the shadow of two remarkable men who lived life as if they were characters in an opera. The daughter of a mercurial composer and the granddaughter of a legendary cantor, Deborah as a child longs to be entrusted with their precious music and carry it on herself. But it is impossible; she is a girl.<P>A Joyful Noise recounts Deborahs search for a place within the family tradition and, finally, her triumphant discovery of a way to make the men who would exclude her -- who are also the men she loves -- listen to her voice. A Joyful Noise is a tender, heartbreaking, beautifully written chronicle of the power of memory, the survival of faith, and the pursuit of a grand musical heritage.
