Synopsis

Winner of the National Jewish Book Award of 1979, this classic novel of love and war is now available in ebook format for the first time!

Violence shattered her golden world, and Leah's journey began...

It swept her from the burning villages of old Russia to the tenements of New York, from the glittering showrooms of Paris to the settlements of war-torn Israel. It brought her marriage to a man who yearned for her sweet, denied love - and passion for a man who yearned only for danger. It gave her a son born of shame, and a daughter born to destiny. It tested her love in the shadow of the Depression and the hell of the Nazi fury...

And then Leah's journey brought her home.
