Reworking the Biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, with perhaps a nod to Neil Simon's Odd Couple, this book tells the story of a fifty year old Jewish survivor from Budapest and her widowed daughter-in-law, twenty-two-year old Louisa, the daughter of a former bureaucrat in the Third Reich.

"A grand, brave, open-hearted novel...honest, intelligent, and highly entertaining." - The Boston Globe
