How did a single-mother Holocaust survivor thrive on her own in America? Through the power of her wits, her imagination, and above all, her hands. Told by her only daughter, award-winning author, clinical social worker, and her mother’s model, Hanna Perlstein Marcus, Sidonia’s Thread and Surviving Remnant, the first two books in a planned trilogy, portray an intimate and richly rewarding authentic tale of the struggle for life among new refugees in America. Marcus’ books about the singular mother and daughter bond that emerges from the ashes of the Holocaust will enchant, inform, and leave you wanting more.
