Young Adult Historical Fiction. Been sitting here since The Librettos' home school days. Going to read and release it sometime soon!

Letters From Rifka is a young adult historical novel by Karen Hesse, published by Holt in 1992. It features a Jewish family's emigration from Russia in 1919, to Belgium and ultimately to the U.S., from the perspective of daughter Rifka, based on the personal account by Hesse's great-aunt Lucille Avrutin.

Hesse and Letters won the 2012 Phoenix Award from the Children's Literature Association, recognizing the best children's book published twenty years earlier that did not win a major award. Among contemporary honors it won the 1993 National Jewish Book Award ...

The protagonist's name, Rifka, is the East European Jewish version of Rebecca.

Sending this on a trip to Arkansas when I'm done!

April 4, 2014: What a sweet little book of family, life, love. Such trials people went through to get here, to the land that promised them freedom! I hope they all found what they were seeking.
