Excellent immigrant memoir of Jewish girl born in Krakow shortly after the end of WW2, while her parents were in hiding. At the age of 10, Eva, a promising young pianist, is uprooted to Vancouver where she struggles to find her voice in society. Interesting observations on European Jewish culture, life in Krakow during communism, and Canadian/American intellectual life.
We tend to forget how hard it was for immigrant families to relocate when they had to leave behind all that was familiar and go to a new country where they didn't even speak the language. This is a superb memoir about leaving Poland and trying to begin again.
