Summary
"In Russia in the summer of 1914, as war with Germany looms and the czar's army tightens its grip on the local Jewish community, Miri Abramov and her brilliant physicist brother, Vanya, are facing an impossible decision. Since their parents drowned fleeing to America, the ambitious siblings have been raised by their babushka, a famous matchmaker from Odessa who taught them to protect themselves at all costs ... But now, with fierce, headstrong Miri on the verge of becoming one of Russia's only female surgeons, and Vanya close to solving the puzzle of Einstein's elusive theory of relativity, can they bear to leave the homeland that has given them so much? Before they have time to make their choice, war is declared and Vanya goes missing, alone with Miri's fiancé. With the help of a mysterious, wounded soldier, Miri braves the firing squad to go looking for them both"--Dust jacket flap
