Letters from Rifka

$6.99 $3.99

Product Description

From Newbery media winner Karen Hesse comes an unforgettable story of an immigrant family’s journey to The us.

“The us,” the girl repeated. “What is going to you do there?”
I was silent for a little time.
“I can do everything there,” I answered.

Rifka knows nothing about The us when she flees from Russia with her family in 1919. But she dreams that in the new country she will at last be secure from the Russian soldiers and their harsh remedy of the Jews. All the way through her journey, Rifka carries with her a cherished volume of poetry by Alexander Pushkin. In it, she records her observations and experiences in the form of letters to Tovah, the beloved cousin she has left at the back of.

Strong-hearted and made up our minds, Rifka should endure a great deal: humiliating examinations by doctors and soldiers, deadly typhus, separation from all she has ever known and loved, murderous storms at sea, detainment on Ellis Island–and is if this is not enough, the loss of her glorious golden hair.

Based on a true story from the writer’s family, Letters from Rifka presents a real-life heroine with an uncommon courage and unsinkable spirit.
