Decades after fleeing hardships in Russia, a Jewish family faces troubles as Europe sits on the brink of World War II in this emotional saga.
Thirty years have passed since the Sandberg family arrived in Manchester, penniless and bewildered, after fleeing certain death in Russia. Sarah and Abraham’s children have forgotten the poverty and struggles of their youth, and their grandchildren have never known such hardship.
But the prosperity that has come with their adopted country has brought other problems.
Sons David and Nathan have to face the strains of their arranged marriages and feeling increasingly at odds with the mood of the nation. The year is 1935, and while Hitler rules in Germany the Fascists are marching in England . . . Can the Sandbergs keep hold of all they fought so hard for?
The second book in the much-loved Almonds and Raisins series from international bestselling author Maisie Mosco, perfect for fans of Sheelagh Kelly and Jessica Stirling.
