Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0914481622, Hardcover)The book describes Babel's Odessa in the post-revolutionary days through the eyes of a twelve-year old girl, the pre-war Leningrad through the eyes of a young and ardent Communist activist, and the post-war Moscow through the mature and experienced eyes of a Jewish widowed mother who encounters the growth of Stalinist anti-Semitism.
Detached from the traditional Jewish roots and unaccepted by the Soviet political establishment, the disillusioned author is thrust back by historical forces and circumstances to the Jewish roots and her historical homeland-Israel.
