Overview

Set in Lithuania in 1897, this historical romance is the tale of a young woman
conflicted by the traditions and laws of her religion and a need for her own identity. For most of her fifteen years, Hannah has loved Gershon, the Rabbi�s son. A match is made, but Hannah fears becoming a Rabbi�s wife and having to be a perfect example of womanhood. In her mind, the traditional cutting of her hair and wearing a wig or scarf means losing her identity. Hannah tells Gershon how she feels and he breaks the engagement, shaming her family. Life takes a turn for the worse, when her young brothers� fight with town boys causes a pogrom, an attack by Russian Cossacks. When the Russian army comes for her brothers to conscript them into the Czar�s army, Hannah�s aunt and uncle offer to smuggle
the boys out of Lithuania to America. Hannah begs to go with them, despite the harrowing journey. Along the way, she meets Eli, a young flute player, also running away from Russian conscription. Hannah�s dream of love and life in a safe, free land, may at last be within her grasp if they survive the voyage and get through immigration.
