Based on the real-life adventures of the author’s great-aunt, LETTERS FROM RIFKA gives a realistic picture of the immigrant experience of Jews escaping the post-Revolutionary chaos of Russia to Poland and then to America. Angela Dawe narrates the story, giving Rifka a believable 12-year-old voice as she documents her journey in letters to a cousin left behind. Dawe voices Rifka’s fear and confusion as she outwits soldiers, survives typhus, and endures separation from her family when ringworm quarantines her. Dawe’s voice matures as Rifka grows into a resourceful young woman with the confidence to stand up not only for herself but also for weaker travelers. This is a riveting story of the immigrant experience from a youthful perspective. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2011]
