Description: Thirteen-year-old Rachel imagines that her daily visits with her great-grandmother, Nana Sashie, will be just another boring duty -- till Sashie starts to tell the story of her life in old Russia. Soon Rachel finds herself caught up in Sashie's tale of a distant country and time, a time when Jews were forced to serve in the Czar's armies or were brutally murdered in pogroms, a time when nine-year-old Sashie devised a wonderful plan for her family's escape.
