RJD Women’s Book Club – ”Abigail’s Song” with Author

March 14 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Alina Rubin will be joining our book club to discuss her new novel.

“Alina Rubin is an up-and-coming star in the realm of historical fiction. She is a determined and talented writer who knows how to bring history to life through her courageous main characters.” — Colin Mustful, author, historian, editor, and founder of History Through Fiction.

Cast out from her home after her mother’s death, orphan Abigail Jones wanders around her English town on Christmas Eve of 1809. Desperately trying to suppress her cough—the same that killed her mother—Abigail begs for coins on the freezing cold streets. With the help of the medical student, Oli Higgins, she recovers and avoids being sent to the cruel orphanage. Oli then reveals his secret: he is hiding his Jewish identity and his birth name, David Fridman, to pursue his chosen profession. He brings her into his devout, loving Jewish home. Over time, she embraces her found family and discovers her talent for music.

RJD will pay for attendees paperback or Kindle version of the book if desired. Please e-mail us at AlinaZatulyviter@juf.org with your format preference.
