My Aunt Manya is a period novel set in Russia at the end of the 19th century. The heroine, ten-year-old Sarah, lives unhappily with her much-hated stepmother. Sarah’s father has gone to live in New York with his sister Manya while he looks for a job. Sarah’s life changes overnight when Aunt Manya writes with news that her father has been killed in an accident. She sends her a boat ticket, some money and an offer of a home. Sarah’s family and friends are poor, Yiddish-speaking Russian Jews. Their lives are in constant danger from Cossacks – cruel Russian soldiers who, without warning, kill innocent Jews in attacks called Pogroms. When Sarah’s friends get word that a group of Cossacks is camped nearby, they lose no time in helping her to set out alone on the longest journey of her young life. My Aunt Manya is a heart-warming story of Sarah’s journey to America on the ‘other side of the world.’ She becomes an immigrant with just one goal – to live with her Aunt Manya in a free country. Sarah faces difficulties and dangers of the unknown with great courage and determination which, together with the hand of fate, combine to make this an unforgettable story. Readers aged 9-11 years who love adventure will be captivated by Sarah’s bravery.

"This release is an important contribution to the literary discourse about women's lives, sexuality, politics and popular culture in early 20th-century Russia." -- Publishers Weekly One of the most sensationally popular and influential of all pre-Revolutionary novels, Keys to Happiness is set against a panorama of Russian society on the eve of World War I. It tells the stormy tale of Manya Yeltsova, a Russian "new woman" who pursues her dreams and passions as a dancer and free spirit who captivates, among others, a Jewish socialist tycoon and a reactionary Russian nobleman. At the time of its publication, the novel crossed the boundaries of both gender and class to define a new type of literature in Russian society. The editors' informative introduction places the novel within its cultural, political, and social context and makes clear for today's readers its literary and historical importance.

A “marvelous” autobiographical novel of a Jewish girl emerging from hiding in Poland after the defeat of the Nazis, and rediscovering freedom and hope (Publishers Weekly). By the time I was five years old I had spent half my life hidden away in a barn loft. I had vague memories of the world outside and I listened to stories people around me told of that world, but it was hard for me to believe in its existence. Was there really anything beyond the wails of this barn? I knew that there were people out there, people other than my mother, my aunt, my cousin and another family who shared our hide-out, but it was hard for me to imagine them . . . After two and a half years, a little girl returns to the world, liberated by Soviet soldiers who have driven out the Germans. Amid the rubble and chaos, her mother wants only to look to a new future—while her aunt, on the other hand, recounts tales of life before the war. Moving from their devastated village to Bylau, a German town under Russian rule, and then to Warsaw and eventually Montreal, Ann Charney, a winner of the Chatelaine Fiction Prize and two National Magazine Awards, “beautifully evokes her fear-filled young narrator’s gropings toward maturity and a sense of identity in this moving and memorable novel” inspired by her own childhood experience (Publishers Weekly)—an examination of trauma and renewal that also serves as “an illuminating document of an unusual time and place” (Library Journal).
