by Preeva Tramiel

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

A moving , warm, and funny journey from the memories of a painful childhood shadowed by ghosts of dead relatives to the proud inheritance of a rich history that was obscured by unspoken jealousy and early sadness.


The author reaches into history, the electronic memory of the planet. and a box that used to hold Bacardi rum to cheat death and recreate the facts of her father's life in Transcarpathian Ruthenia, Prague, and  Israel. Overcoming a fear of leaving her cozy home and routine, she discovers that love can be rediscovered long after the object of love is gone.
