My friend Mary Alice is trying to track down this book:
It is a longer picture book about a Jewish girl who leaves Russia alone and lives with her tailor aunt and uncle in America, then marries a young man she meets on the boat, and I think saves up and sends for her elderly mother?
Not ringing any bells for me, but it sounds great…
