What People are Saying About This
"Mirel's Daughter is a touching and soulful addition to the tradition of Jewish immigrant literature. Dramatically suspenseful and emotionally rich, it reminds us yet again how treasured are the stories of our forebearers, whatever their origins, how fervent, for many, their hopes and dreams."
author of Chicken Dreaming Corn
"In Mirel's Daughter Kay Gill tells the story of a ten-year-old girl's remarkable survival and escape to America during the brutal, random, murderous pogroms that swept Russia at the end of World War I. That the girl never lost hope is a tribute to the human spirit worthy of Anne Frank. That the girl was Kay Gill's mother?"a single drop of rain clinging to a leaf"?adds unforgettable tenderness to an ultimately uplifting story."
author of Double Jeopardy
"Set historically just after World War I, when the Germans were withdrawing, the Communist revolution beginning and gangs of nationalist and tsarsist bandit's rampaging through Jewish villages, Mirel's Daughter chronicles what it was like for the Jews of the Ukraine as they endured the prototype of the ethnic extermination to come. A valuable addition to the great witness literature of the twentieth century, Kay Gill's skillfully woven novel is a testament to the human spirit."
