    A good fictional story that has a tone of accuracy about peasant Slavic people whose lives are caught up in war and immigration in the early 20th century I would like to find a description of the immigrant experience upon entry to the U.S Did someone need to claim them How many were returned as unfit Saw an estimate of 2%.

    This book chronicles life in a Rusyn village before, during and after World War I I read it because I heard the author speak during a recent Slovak American Society of Washington event The Rusyns lived near the Slovaks my ancestors , so village life and the experiences of the characters in this book were similar to what my ancestors would have experienced This story was better than I was expecting it to be The characters were believable and I was able to follow their growth and sympathize w This book chronicles life in a Rusyn village before, during and after World War I I read it because I heard the author speak during a recent Slovak American Society of Washington event The Rusyns lived near the Slovaks my ancestors , so village life and the experiences of the characters in this book were similar to what my ancestors would have experienced This story was better than I was expecting it to be The characters were believable and I was able to follow their growth and sympathize with their feelings The events, especially during World War I which had an Eastern Front that I never knew about and the characters journey to America at the end were especially moving

    An epic journey traversing worlds, both literal and metaphoric Well researched and detailed account of life in a Rusyn Ruthenian village and WWI era Eastern Europe Wonderful perspectives and voices of the characters who left life in their home country to travel to Canada Taste of Rusyn food, song, speech, and culture Highly recommended for anyone interested in historical fiction, Rusyn people, the Carpathian mountains, and immigration.

    This was a very good book Every time I though I had a pretty good idea of the direction of the story line, it shifted but in a good way, as it does in real life Emigration, culture, village life, superstition, world war I, revolution, family relationships, all from the prospective of the small ethnic group, Rusyns.

    I LOVED this book From the stories I ve been told, this book could have easily been based on my family, from both sides Both of my parents were Rusyn, my mother born in a small village in Slovakia, my father s parents from another 2 different Rusyn villages who immigrated to the US and met here Like Yevka Senchak, my grandmother bore my mother after my grandfather came to the US It would be 10 years before my mom met her father And like Yevka, my grandmother s marriage was arranged by the f I LOVED this book From the stories I ve been told, this book could have easily been based on my family, from both sides Both of my parents were Rusyn, my mother born in a small village in Slovakia, my father s parents from another 2 different Rusyn villages who immigrated to the US and met here Like Yevka Senchak, my grandmother bore my mother after my grandfather came to the US It would be 10 years before my mom met her father And like Yevka, my grandmother s marriage was arranged by the families, but love was elsewhere I read over and over the exchange between Vasyl and his brother Andrii when Andrii admits to being a poet I believe in my heart, although I am American, that our people long for their own homeland The exchange also leads to a deep, beautiful, philosophical discussion on sinning, which subtly explains Vasyl s behavior going forward I laughed out loud at Paraska, if she had threatened with a wooden spoon, it definitely would have been my grandma

    Fascinating and believable story of fictional characters who lived in my ancestral homeland I could picture both the simple beauty of village life and the terrors of war I found myself absorbed in the characters and the story Very well written
