Jack Michonik "As a Latin Jew this book immediately sparked my interest. The Heritage is a beautifully narrated and touching account of the experiences of Jewish immigrants when establishing roots in South America. Michonik is wildly successful in creating characters with great depth that feel real and relatable. The book is well researched and seamlessly blends historical facts and fiction through a narrative that feels effortless and keeps you turning the page. I highly recommend it." - Amazon Customer Review of The Heritage
