She is a fiction fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The Weight of Ink is an absorbing novel set in London in the 1600s and the early 21st century and tells the story of two remarkable women—Ester Velasquez, a 16th century scribe for a blind rabbi, and Helen Watt, a contemporary historian who becomes intensely involved in Ester’s history. Toni Morrison has referred to Rachel as “a gifted writer, astonishingly adept at nuance, narration, and the politics of passion.”
