Summary
The days and nights of the Rabinovitch family--a rabbi, his wife, and their nine children who live in the Jewish quarter of Lublin, Poland, in the 1920s--are filled with joy, adventure, and ritual, but the biggest adventure occurs one summer when the oldest daughter Adina is betrothed to a young man from Warsaw. Based on the history of the author's Nana Nomi
