Two brothers grow up on the Jewish streets of Warsaw. Adolphe moves to Switzerland while Marcus, inspired by Communism, moves east. A century later Marcus’s great-granddaughter, Nadia Ragozhina, rediscovers the missing parts of her broken family in a beautifully written portrayal of the tumultuous events of twentieth-century Europe, though the eyes of six women who fought for the survival and happiness of their families.
