Panoramic in scope, Away is the epic and intimate story of young Lillian Leyb, a dangerous innocent, an accidental heroine. When her family is destroyed in a Russian pogrom, Lillian comes to America alone, determined to make her way in a new land. When word comes that her daughter, Sophie, might still be alive, Lillian embarks on an odyssey that takes her from the world of the Yiddish theater on New York’s Lower East Side, to Seattle’s Jazz District, and up to Alaska, along the fabled Telegraph Trail toward Siberia. All of the qualities readers love in Amy Bloom’s work–her humor and wit, her elegant and irreverent language, her unflinching understanding of passion and the human heart–come together in the embrace of this brilliant novel, which is at once heartbreaking, romantic, and completely unforgettable.

One of the best
I'm an avid reader and this book is possibly one of the best books I've ever read. I know I say that about a lot of books but this one.... I just didn't want it to end. I can't wait to start another Amy Bloom story... They make me just melt into the story...I've been recommending this book to all my friends who belong to book clubs. I'm going to wait a year and read it again to get a new perspective.
