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

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.
