"I am like an even-fresh olive . . . I trust in the kindness of God . . ." The Book of Psalms 52:10.
This book tells the story of a young girl, the only remaining member of her immediate family. Cipora survived the Holocaust during the Second World War. She drew her strength of survival from her mother's prophecy and the faith in God.
Through the stories told by the survivor, the author brings to life the shtetl-village in Ruscova, Romania especially when the Sabbath and the holiday of Passover are described in details. The recipes which were collected by the author connect us to a lost Europe.
