it was amazing
bookshelves: jewish
Recommended for: anyone who is interested in the relationships between mothers and daughters, especially Jews
Read in January, 1999

This book tells the story of four generations of Jewish women. The first leaves Russia during a pogrom, the second is a flapper during the 20's in Paris, the third is a famous folk singer in the 60's, and the fourth is a historian researching her family history, which is how we learn about all of the others. It's a story of relationships and of history and how they intertwine.
