Note: 
After they are arrested by the Soviets as political enemies and exiled to Siberia, the author and her family were uprooted from their comfortable, cultured life in Vilna (Lithuania) and forced to struggle for their very survival on the harsh Asian steppe. 10 year old Esther movingly describes "the end of my lovely world" and their five years of exile weeding potato fields, working in the mines, and fighting against deprivation and despair to stay alive. Above all, their strength as a family sustains them and gives them hope for the future. This classic title, the winner of the very first Sydney Taylor Book Award, is the star of the late Esther Hautzig's oeuvre. Another gem, entitled A Picture of Grandmother, gives readers a glimpse into the "lovely world" that was torn apart by the Holocaust.
