Children of Liberty [Hebrew translation]

By Paullina Simons

(This is the only non-Hebrew original that I got while in Israel - it was interesting reading it, after reading original Hebrew books - one can sometimes tell what the original phrase was). It tells the story of a young Italian immigrant who, on her first day in the States, meets the man she falls desperately in love with. Of course, it is a forbidden love - on both sides, and the consequences are formidable. In between, there are a lot of historical references, such as to Mother Jones, Emma Goldman, Robert Gould Shaw, and the Panama canal. [355 pp.]
