Gittle, only 10 months when her mother dies, is educated beyond the norm for Jewish girls in 19th century Czarist Russia. She grows up to inhabit a world that ranges far outside the shtetl. Based on memoirs of the author's own grandmother, this vivid narrative about a woman who does what she must to rescue her family from oppression is a page-turner.
