I received a copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads.

A small Jewish town far removed from civilization attempting to keep themselves removed from the atrocities of World War Two by starting the world over on their little river made island. (view spoiler)

It took me a little while to understand this story, rather I should say it took a little while for me to grasp the way the story was told. The beginning of this book is very child like, which would make sense as the narrator of the story is only a child herself. As she grows and matures so too does the story to the point that I had a hard putting the book down causing me many late nights reading in bed and many well earned yawns the next morning on my way to work.

Ramona Ausubel is a fantastic writer and storyteller who paints a wonderful picture of a sleepy little town, the characters who inhabit it and their stories.
