Echoes of the shtetl,a slim volume and eerily close journey through the vast expansion of time's forward pace to a time which we so often do hear of, yet in human connection few are the ties to bind...

A book should not dictate individual thought, but rather prompt such through simplistic words few to letter portraits astir ones mind in infinite volumes.< Less
