Description

"America," the girl repeated. "What will you do there?""I was silent for a little time.""I will do everything there," I answered."Rifka knows nothing about America when she flees from Russia with her family in 1919. But she dreams she will at last be safe from the Russian soldiers and their harsh treatment of the Jews in the new country. Throughout her journey, Rifka carries with her a cherished volume of poetry by Alexander Pushkin. In it, she records her observations and experiences in the form of letters to her beloved cousin she has left behind. Strong-hearted and determined, Rifka must endure a great deal: humiliating examinations by doctors and soldiers, deadly typhus, separation from all she has ever known and loved, murderous storms at sea--and as if this is not enough, the loss of her glorious golden hair. And even if she does make it to America, she's not sure America will have her.
