In a bright, clear voice, narrator Jen Taylor transports listeners to post-WWI Czechoslovakia for an insightful look at a resilient Jewish family's life. It's been five years since Papa left to find work in New York City, leaving Mama and his two young daughters, Szerena and Gisella, to wait until they can join him. The story traces a year in their impoverished village, which is described through a colorful collage of farm and domestic activities interspersed with intriguing details of diverse social customs, religious traditions, culinary practices, folklore, and childhood adventures. Taylor enhances the narration through her use of accents and skillful voicing of emotional events leading up to the family's joyful reunion in America. This is an engaging audiobook on the twentieth-century immigrant experience. S.A.A. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
