Description

Away is the extraordinary story of an accidental hero, young Lillian Leyb. Her family murdered in a Russian pogrom, in which her three-year-old daughter Sophie vanished, Lillian comes to America alone, determined to make her way. In 1920s New York she is taken under the wing of both Reuben and Meyer Burstein, the family Impresario and his matinee-idol son. But then Lillian's cousin Raisele arrives with news of Sophie. Driven by wild hope, Lillian sets off on an odyssey across America, travelling from New York's Lower East Side to Seattle's Skid Row and up to Alaska, along the fabled Telegraph Trail. Away is storytelling at its finest - epic in sweet, intimate and psychologically acute, big hearted, witty and unsentimental.
