Wonderful look into pre-World War I and inter war Polish Jewish life. While I don't know how realistic this view is, I was wondering how this might better help me understand my immigrant family and our backgrounds.

Asa Heshel & Abram are two great characters. This is a sweeping historic novel that doesn't feel like one. I stayed up too late reading it on many occasions because there was never a lull in the action.

A great read. Insightful depiction of life in the Jewish community in 19th century Poland.
