JBC (Jewish Book Council) Book Club Pick-of-the-Month for May
The Nesting Dolls: A Novel, by Alina Adams. Each month the Jewish Book Council recommends one fiction and one non-fiction book for book clubs. The Nesting Dolls was their book club pick for May. Adams takes her readers on a multi-generational path through the fascinating history of Communist Russia and Russian immigration to the United States. She deftly portrays generations of women weaving their coming of age stories about love, sacrifice, family, and ultimately survival. This fascinating story spans nearly a century, from 1930’s Siberia to contemporary Brighton Beach. Described as a page turning epic of generations of women in one Russian Jewish family – each striving to break free of fate and history, each yearning for love and personal fulfillment.
