Overview

The Lemon Tree is the true story of a Siberian pioneer family's extraordinary year-long journey as they transport their late son's tiny lemon tree to Israel. Ten-year-old Sasha has one dying wish: he asks his family to take his lemon tree--the tree he raised from a seed floating in his tea--and plant it in an orchard in Israel.

Nothing deters Sasha's family from fulfilling his dream. The Wissotzskys travel on cattle trains through the Trans-Siberian line, become stranded in Shanghai, are shot at by Manchurian officials, and face the constant threat of typhoid fever, as they overcome these and other harrowing obstacles on their 1918 journey.

Against all odds, this real-life pioneer family perseveres in their quest to fulfill a child's dying wish. Can the little tropical tree survive the cold, harsh journey?

    A story for the ages

    As moving a work as you will find, The Lemon Tree is the story of the Wissotzskys trek from Siberia to Israel, a tale that is heartwarming, harrowing and all together rewarding. Ms. Arbel, whose previous works include a biography of the philospher Maimonedes, writes with obvious love for her family and a sense of awe at the trials they faced in their amazing trek. The dangers that they faced would make most turn right back home, but it is clear that this was no ordinary family. Indeed, some of the events described tell of the ingenuity and humanity that the Wissotzskys' possessed in abundance. A friend of mine recommended the book, telling me 'you will not be able to put it down once you start.' He was right. The descriptions of the countries travelled, the personalities of the numerous characters you meet along the way, make for a wonderous reading experience. I cannot wait for my children to read this book, so they can gain a greater understanding of what sacrifice means and how the love of family stands above all else.
