"In Epstein's expert and sensitive hands, truth becomes not only stranger than fiction, but more magnetic, wise and powerful." Gloria Steinem

"Incredible — in the literal sense of the word. How can a Jewish woman in late 20th-century America reconstruct her own matrilineal history across two centuries and an extinct civilization with only scant clues to help her? Epstein has created an impeccable piece of historiography" — Lilith Magazine

"In the guise of a family memoir, she brilliantly evokes Jewish life in the Czech lands... Epstein is unsparing in her examination of the trials of transplantation, and unlike many family biographers, who are in thrall to their characters, she steps out of the frame to observe herself." Ruth Gay, New York Times Book Review

"Helen Epstein's literary pilgrimage to her past will enrich our quest for memory and understanding. Written with her superb talent of storytelling, her tale is profoundly human."
Elie Wiesel
