Jewish Values: Always an Olivia
Number of Pages:
A warm look at many generations of a Jewish family who were expelled from Spain and became, centuries later, members of the Geechee community of former slaves who live on the Georgia Sea Islands. The author is part of that family and the story she tells, part fact, part fiction, is of an odyssey. Because that odyssey skips across so many centuries, places, and races, it will require some introduction when read to younger children.
