Anya by Susan Fromberg Schaeffer

Anya is a myth, an epic...[by] a writer of remarkable power.—Washington Post
Anya Savikin lived among well-to-do Russian Jews in Poland, in a world more like Tolstoy's than our own, until the first bombing of Warsaw and the chaos that ensued. Her story incarnates the strength and love of eastern European Jewry, before and after their decimation. Reading group guide included.

I read this book nearly 25 years ago and the story and characters have stayed with me since. They were so striking and well developed.

I've read this book so many times, the pages are falling out. Schaeffer made these characters real to me, full of moral and physical strengh beyond reason.
