Rachel is Ephra’s wife. Expecting their third child together, Rachel is very much a maternal figure over the Stein family and, although tightly wound and far more emotionally volatile than her sister-in-law, she too is fearless when put under pressure. Not always entirely trusting of her husband, or indeed the relentless work that the Stein family carries out at such a high pace, Rachel’s sense of isolation grows as the story unfolds and she is confronted with secrets and deceptions that threaten to tear the family apart.
