Engaging read loved by our book club hi
Terrific book for book clubs. Filled with memorable, fascinating characters. We see history revealed through the different lives and loves of three generations of one family of Russian women. Each was dealt a very different hand to play at birth. Through them we witness the human cost of the rise and fall of the Soviet Union and the challenges of developing or maintaining individual identity within a multi-generational emigre community in the U.S. My book club gave it a big thumbs up and found it to be an unusual and interesting book, one of our favorites in 2020.

An excellent book!. It brought back to me all memories from Odessa, very similar to what my family had experienced. Especially the "Coffin problem"! Great characters and description of the Jewish traditions which go from generation to generation.
Thank you, Alina Adams!
