Excellent, but unexpected

This is a very short story, only 43 pages, but it is a very compelling read. There's really not much that can be said without spoiling it. It's definitely worth the little bit of time it will take to read it.

Sad tale

This story was well written and interesting, but was quite depressing. It was filled with tragedy without any redeeming message of hope to balance out the bad. There was not just one misfortune...this short story had everything from pillaging Cossacks and mobs destroy...
This story was well written and interesting, but was quite depressing. It was filled with tragedy without any redeeming message of hope to balance out the bad. There was not just one misfortune...this short story had everything from pillaging Cossacks and mobs destroying jewish ghettos to dead babies and tragic fires packed into it's 42 pages. Save yourself the misery and skip this one!

    One word: Wow. Ok... one more word: Brilliant.

    Seriously. History and legend were seamlessly blended together to produce a very masterful short story. I highly recommend it.

    Very good writing!

    The author had my attention quickly and maintained it until an end that came too soon. This book made me realize that I had a low expectation of "free books", and I see now that they can be an introduction to excellent
    writers who warrant being sought after for more than just a taste. Excellent storytelling.

    One word: captivating! This story is beautifully written. There's just the right amount of magic and mysticism to make this piece of fiction intriguing but not unrelatable. I was honestly bummed out to finish it.

    Don't Miss this Book

    This was a short book, an easy read. I could picture what happened to this family in a Jewish ghetto in Europe, and what the girls faced as newcomers in the United States.
