The Jewish Immigrant Experience
on August 28, 2012
In this tribute to the Jewish immigrant experience, Jane Isenberg weaves a mystery spanning generations and the cities of New York, Seattle and Skagway, Alaska. With humor and delightful dialogue the story unfolds and the tension builds as the mystery of immigrant Aliza Rudinsk's life and death are revealed. The history of Seattle - the fire, the plague, its streets and neighborhoods, and its Jewish population is a fascinating read. After finishing this book I feel like I want to continue to read more of the history of this place and time.
