Product description

Product Description

Meet the Rabinovitches: mischievous Yakov, bubbly Nomi, rebellious Miriam, solemn Shlomo, and seven more! Papa is a rabbi and their days are full of intriguing rituals and adventures. But the biggest adventure of all is when big sister Adina is told she is to be married at the age of fifteen - to someone she has never met.

Based on the author's real family, the Rabinovitches dance, laugh and cook their way through an extraordinary life in 1920s Poland.

In the classic tradition, this highly readable story is fascinating, engaging and as warm as freshly baked bread.

Adina is to be married at 15 to a boy she does not know! This is a recreation of life in 1920s Poland for a devout Jewish family as told to the author from her grandmother. It is a life rich in religious ritual that is fascinating. This is written through young eyes which makes it suitable throughout for older children. It is only the author's note at the end that is the kicker.

An easy read but full of an amazing amount of historical detail, that made me pause a number of times as I read and thought about it. The book is based on the author's grandmother and brings the household she lived in, and the times to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a joy to read 17 March 2016
By Mrs B. - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a joy to read. Set in Lublin in the 1920s, the story revolves around the arranged marriage of 15-year-old Adina Rabinovitch to someone she has never met, as seen mostly through the eyes of 10-year-old Nomi and 8-year-old Yakov. The Rabinovitch family - the rabbi, his wife, and their nine children are all brought vividly to life with warmth and humour. Based on the author's own family and the stories her Nana Nomi told her, the tale is steeped in authentic Jewish ritual and tradition, and the characters, re-imagined by the author, are both highly relatable and uniquely drawn. The prose is delightful, and the illustrations charming. I found myself going back to look at them again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful family story for all ages 10 April 2016
By Seealliread - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Oh, my. I am going to be hand selling this gorgeous book to everyone! What a beautiful read. Such a lovely family story and such a rare time period (though achingly sad when you get tiny glimpses of the storm clouds rolling in and learn what happened after). This reminded me of so many of my favourite books. The What Katy Did series, Noel Streatfeild's books, the Green Knowe books, Rumer Godden's books and lots more.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than a "good read" 25 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Hard to explain why, but the lives and activities of this big family just fascinate. Every incident and feeling is vivid and real, so the reader is like part of the family and caught up in their excitements, fears and love. Parts moved me to tears, but tears of affection and relief. This is a happy book, that you live inside rather than just read. Don't miss it.
