Note: 
Set in Vilna, Lithuania in 1939, this is the story of Sara's discovery that her grandmother is really her step-grandmother. As the story unfolds with a hint of mystery and a trace of family conflict, the reader gets a glimpse into the life of a cultivated Jewish family on the brink of unthinkable disaster. The events to come are not part of the story, which looks back fondly at a once-loved place and at family memories. The soft black and white sketches have the quality of old photographs. A quiet gem of a story, based on the author's childhood!
