Description

"A profusion of delightful passages couched in unfailingly lovely language." -- New York Times Book Review

1939. As the Nazis advance into Poland, a Jewish mathematician and watchmaker named Pomeranz escapes into the wintry forest, leaving behind his beautiful, intelligent wife, Stefa. After the war, having evaded the concentration camps, they begin to build new lives, Stefa in Stalin's Russia and Pomeranz in Israel, where, as they move toward reunion, another war is brewing. An intricate tale of people seeking escape from a hostile world in thrillingly fantastical ways. 

"Lyrical . . . Its youthfulness and energy are exhilarating." -- The New Yorker
