(Fiction, 368 pp. 2006)
The relationship between the spirit of the elderly, childless Friedl and three generations of a secular Jewish family whose “faithless” patriarch fled Poland for America in 1906 permeates this novel, which interweaves history, mysticism, and magic realism with the reality of anti-Semitism and spiritual redemption.
