"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."
- CHRISTINA SCHWARTZ
author of Drowning Ruth and The Edge of the Earth
"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."
