  • About the Book

    An enchanting tale of an adventure-filled voyage across the ocean, from America to pre-state Israel. The year was 1933, and the travellers – a family of dolls. Or is this a real-life family chronicle of the hardships of immigration and absorption, related as a whimsical doll-fantasy?

    A picture of how people lived in what was thenJewish Palestine, how they spoke, and what they felt toward their ancestral homeland.
