Until the Robin Walks on Snow Bernice L. Rocque
The writing and historical aspect of this book is unquestionably wonderful. The book drew me in and made me want to hug and help the Polish, Russian Immigrants in Norwich, Connecticut, as they fought to save a pound and a half baby in the 1920s. Through people I love, I have experienced what this entails today, and how difficult it is with all the modern conveniences.
The clever and resourceful choices, complimented the courage of this family made the story unique and full of hope.
Loved it! You can judge a book by its beautiful cover.
