"How do you know who you are if you don't know where your family came from?"
"A Polish American Jewish family's search for roots provides the gripping drama in this first novel... Neither reverential nor simplistic, this is a stirring story of secrets and discovery and, sometimes, mystical connection, especially for those who wish they had asked about family history before it was too late."
"Passionate, wise, and wonderfully rich, this remarkable debut, spanning generations and continents, will pull you into its vivid, dramatic world from the very first page. With an unerring sense of what makes a great story, Rosenbaum guides her varied cast through enormous changes - external, internal, even corporeal - as they grapple with the big issues: faith, identity, and culture."
