From Publishers Weekly

A prologue tells us that Rosa, living in England, is not only dear but the center of her sister Esther's existence, though for years Rosa hasn't answered Esther's weekly letters. The story flashes back to 1900, when Shmuel, Rosa's husband, flees to America from his Russian village, whence Rosa, pregnant and afraid to wait for the promised ticket, embarks to find him. She takes 15-year-old Esther with her, but when the ship docks briefly in England, Rosa is left behind and Esther must travel alone to Ellis Island. Beautiful and gifted Rosa makes friends and a career, without ceasing to search for her family, whereas plain little Esther hovers near poverty until Shmuel bigamously marries her. Almost simultaneously, she finds an ad placed by Rosa in a Jewish newspaper and the Dear Sister correspondence develops, governed on Esther's part by deception. For more than 60 years it continues, until Rosa, an established couturiere, refusing to be put off any longer by excuses, voyages across the sea to Esther's 80th birthday party. Because the denouement is predictable, because switching from one sister to the other reduces tension, and especially because Esther is a paltry figure whom her creator seems to despise, the reader is seldom seriously involved with either the plot or the half-formed people who move within it.

From Library Journal

Despite a separation imposed by thousands of miles and decades of bitterness, the sisterly bond remains powerful between Russian immigrants Esther and Rosa Dutzhin, whose stories are told in this fine first novel. Settling in New York in the early part of the century, Esther meets, falls in love with, and marries her own brother-in-law, who had abandoned his wife years before, never telling him that Rosa, now living in England, had borne him a child, and never telling her sister that her missing husband had been located. When the facts come to light years later, the break between the sisters seems irrevocable, making their ultimate reunion all the more poignant . An engrossing novel, highly recommended for popular collections. Marcia R. Hoffman, M.L.S., American Hoechst Corp., Somerville, N.J .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story 25 janvier 2014
Par Agnes Gant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
just finished reading this book, it was a fantastic family saga about two Jewish sisters, starting before the great 1914-18 war, they lived in Russia, managed to get out before falling foul of the cossacks, escaped to England & America (they got separated) the story then follows their separate lives and although they reconnected by mail they were only reunited, after many years of hardship and suffering, when they were in their golden years 90years old, Judith Summers writes a brilliant book I loved it, hope there's more of the same.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Touching and inspiring 23 juin 2014

Being one of 3 sisters myself, I found myself understanding (not necessarily agreeing) both sides and was sitting on 'the edge of my seat' hoping that they would see each other again. I loved this book, was a phenomenal read and I would highly recommend it. Lovely and heartfelt story.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Well written, good story, easy read 9 mai 2014
Par mrs Tania Falk - Publié sur Amazon.com

I really enjoyed this book. Hard to put down. Easy read, the story line is easy to follow. Would have given 5 stars but I thought the book was quite short and the ending sudden. There was also a couple of unrealistic coincidences to keep the plot together.

Feelings were so intense. I kept leaning from one to the other. Very well written. First time I have read this author but will certainly look for other publications
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Racial Intolerance 5 avril 2014
Par Gaye Byrne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It was interesting because it reminded me what religious and racial intolerance force some peoples to endure. The story was to the point but not very graphic but succinct and let your imagination to the work.
