really liked it

Overall, it's a really charming must-read book for those who want to understand how some of hard-working Jewish people lived before and mostly after the establishment of Israel. Based on his personal story, Meir illustrates day-to-day life of one moshav (a cooperative farmer's community) in a very detailed way. Especially astonishing how Shalev tell us about the mule every time as if it'd be a human being.

Its original name in Hebrew is "A Russian roman". To make it clear, they call themselves Russians in this book, not Ukrainians. Most main characters had immigrated from a Ukrainian part of Russia between the end of 19th and the beginning of 20th century. Stop separating, it's so made-up.
