    Amazing Book & Amazing Author!

    I got a sneak peek at this book and couldn't put it down! Sherman's characters will live in my memory for a long time. I feel like I went with Berta on her journey. It sounds cheesy, but I totally laughed and cried reading this book...if you are looking for a book to curl up with, this one is a winner.

    Highly recommend.

    Thoroughly enjoyed. I love the history of the country and am amazed at how these people survived. For anyone who loves to read historical novels, this is a must.

    A very good read

    I very much enjoyed this book, but felt that something was missing. There were many events and characters in the book that the reader only got a small view of and were not given more detail on surrounding events, outcomes of events, or details on what happened with other characters or motivations for their actions. The book clearly just follows the life of the main character, but I wanted to know more about what was occurring with the people around her. As far as the story that I did get - it was moving and completely held my attention. The reader follows the main character on a very difficult journey. I find that the fact that it didn't have to happen that way at all makes me think back on this book often.

    Delightful

    What a wonderful debut novel! This is a book that you won't want to put down because there is drama in every page turn. Can't wait for Sherman's next book!

    A must read!!

    Set against a backdrop of early 20th century Russia, this deeply moving novel follows one woman's dogged fight for survival for herself and her family. Amidst brutal pogroms and harsh winters Berta Alshonsky's search for her beloved husband rings with human tenderness and spirit. Beautifully written, fast-paced, crackling with history and humor this novel is one of the best I've read in ages.

    Good story, but ended abruptly!!!!

    I thought that the ending was symbolic of letting go of the past. After all that the story had developed as far as trial and tribulations, the abrupt ending was unexpected.
