“The author pulls the reader into a carefully researched world of Jewish life in the early 1900s, first in Russia and then in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. She populates this world with believable characters who experience the joys and sorrows of leaving their homeland and finding a place in a new city full of opportunities and setbacks.”
-Tish Davidson, Next Generation Indie Book Awards Judge

"...this work of historical fiction is impeccably researched and told with great heart, and as a result, it manages to bring an important era in history to life." --Kirkus Reviews
