Description

Swept up in the Bolshevik revolution, Joseph Stalin’s Communist Party purges and World War II, the Rakitova family faces innumerable obstacles to survival. But young Maya knows only that her father is gone and that she must hide her Jewish identity. With what Maya calls “uncommon courage,” her mother fights to protect her, relying on the tenuous hope that Maya can keep her identity a secret.
