This “ambitious” New York Times bestseller tells the multigenerational saga of a Russian-Jewish family who emigrates to America and eventually Israel (Los Angeles Times Book Review).
Chavala Rabinsky is sixteen when her mother dies and she becomes the caretaker of her five siblings. Beautiful and wise beyond her years, Chavala catches the eye of Dovid Landau, a poor cobbler whose dreams transform her life when he marries her. But Odessa, Russia, is a dangerous place in 1905. The Landaus flee the pogroms of their homeland for Ottoman-ruled Palestine—until escalating violence forces the family to become wanderers again.
Rich in passion and scope, No Time for Tears sounds a call of love and liberation that will ring out for generations to come.
