The book is a cultural study of a Jewish family from a shtetl in Ukraine before World War I to its lives on several continents in the 21st century. Summerfield builds on the oral storytelling of her father, who escaped from Ukraine during the Russian Revolution and settled in Fredericktown, Pa. Drawing from a rich cache of family letters, immigration papers, eyewitness accounts, photographs, maps and genealogy, as well as a visit to her father’s village in 2011, Summerfield presents her deep historic research with prose that is both inspiring and heartbreaking.
