In 1890, Aliza Rudinsk, a young Orthodox Jewish immigrant from the Ukraine, came to Seattle via New York’s Lower East Side where she hoped to make a safe home and send for her family. When Aliza’s bones turn up in Seattle’s underground streets in 1965 along with a book written in Yiddish, recently widowed empty nester Rachel Mazursky offers to translate the book. Aliza’s surprising and poignant story compels Rachel to search for clues to the identity of the young woman’s murderer. On this quest Rachel unearths disturbing secrets about Aliza’s past and finds new purpose in her own life and new strength as well.
