Once again Kathryn Lasky has told with great style and emotion a very interesting story. Reuven and his sister Rachel are the only ones survive a pogrom that destroys their family and their town in Russia. Reuven's inner strength saves them both. And it is that strength that eventually leads them both to a new and productive life in a America. The narrator does a good job with the accent, not too much to make it difficult to understand but enough to give the story depth and flavor. Good listen all around.
I thought this book was very pleasant to listen to. It provided a historical background into Russia I didn't know about. I thought that it was a very good book to read. I'm glad that I purchased it to listen to.
