"Hest simply and faithfully holds a mirror to the milestone event for millions of turn-of-the-century immigrants."— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)

When a young girl from a poor eastern European village learns that she must leave her beloved grandmother for a new life - and a new love - in America, they both feel that their hearts will break. The sure and inspired narrative by award-winning author Amy Hest is paired with paintings by P.J. Lynch that glow with warmth and carefully observed detail, creating an unforgettable tribute to the immigrant experience.
