Even Such is Time
Anna is only fifteen when she is sent away from her family's drought-stricken farm to work for a wealthy family in the city. A recent immigrant from the ravages of Bolshevik Russia, Anna struggles to understand her place, first in the home of her proud English employers, and later in a community composed almost entirely of recent immigrants, where subtle differences of language and religion mark one just as indelibly.
Through marriage, children, a world war, and a shocking family tragedy, Anna chronicles with gentle insight her own family's coming of age in a new land. What they choose to keep and what they discard decide who they will become-both as a family and as a people.
