    Staff Pick: Anna & Solomon

    Staff Pick: Anna & Solomon

    Based on the story of the author’s grandparents’ migration to the United States from late-nineteenth-century Russia, Anna and Solomon shares how Solomon moved to the U.S. first, where he worked to save money for Anna to join him.

    Solomon and his new wife, Anna, live happily in a small village in Russia.  However, soldiers sent by the Czar make life very difficult for them, and they decide to try and find a better life in America.  Having only enough for one of them to go, Solomon leaves Anna behind with her family and moves to New York City.  He finds work as a painter, and soon has enough money to send for Anna. But it’s not Anna who steps off the gangplank. This is a wonderful story about love, family, and starting a new life!
