The best ever. Rochelle has done it again. I couldn't put it down! Can't wait for the third book to be published. I give this five stars ...more

All power to Rochelle Wisoff-Field's brilliant writing, this sequel to Please Say Kaddish For Me left me even more emotionally drained than its predecessor. Even though Havah, plus some of her family and friends have managed to escape persecution, if not certain death in Czarist Russia at the hands of thugs who profess to be Christians, they still have family and friends back home who haven't the money or means to escape.

Although most of the story is set in the US, which is far from perfect re o

A fabulous sequel to "Please say Kaddish To Me". This one continues the story of Havah and Arel, Nikolai, Ulrich and members of the Gitterman family. As in the first book, all is not rosy. It is a most difficult transition from Pogrom-torn Russia to racist-United States.

I do not want to go into any detail as I would hate to spoil this for any future readers but must say there were cringe-worthy moments - Rochelle does have a knack for describing horror in detail - and there were most beautiful o

A MUST read and the best gift you could give this year!
Rochelle has a strong grasp of the written word. Her ability to pull you into the scenes—feeling the fear, anguish, joy and elation—shows her talents. The dialogue is true to each character as well. Seems she puts herself into each person’s shoes; mind-melding or channeling their souls. Besides that she is the artist behind the covers! INCREDIBLE. She needs her own studio/gallery!!! I highly recommend From Silt and Ashes and the first book,

Wisoff-Fields has done it again! She has written another compelling story, continuing the saga of Havah Cohen and her family and friends into the twentieth century—coming to America, leaving family and friends behind. Multiple, in depth characters on different continents, yet their lives and struggles still intertwine. A strong thread of prejudice and violence evolves in From Silt and Ashes. Well plotted, this book will keep you intrigued until the very end.
