We book fanatics love to share and compare what we're reading. So in that spiritsince some of the most awesome readers on the planet (those of you who read my work!) kep asking, I've decided to let you know what I'm reading and how to get it if you so desire.
I love several genres, mostly in the suspense and fantasy realm, but I also enjoy delving into bygone eras with historical fiction.
I barely even heard the word "Diaspora" in school, and this week's book follows Jewish families on their journey in a highly personal and poignant way.
This week I'm into a historical second-in-a-series romance fiction book called -
From Silt and Ashes by Rochelle Wisof-Fields.
Here's the book description from Amazon:
You killed Jesus - We will kill you!
Sequel to Please Say Kaddish For Me
Death and destruction was the lot of the Jewish people in 19th and 20th century Russia
Russian peasants and other miscreants professing to be Christians attack the Jewish population with immunity and the blessing of the Russian Czar. Only by fleeing the country could a Jew be safe. Leaving loved ones and friends behind, Havah and a few relatives and friends escape the marauding horde in Russia, seeking safety in the United States of America. But even in America - the land of the free - there is bias, discrimination, hatred and mayhem.
Although things were worse in America than they had believed, it was like heaven compared to Russia, and Havah did have one American friend in her corner: President Theodore Roosevelt. Her faith and determination enabled her to persevere and lead her people through trials and tribulations that at times seemed almost too much to bear, but she was buttressed by her father's words: "As one must, one can."

Author Rochelle Wisof-Fields
Kansas City native, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the author of THIS, THAT AND SOMETIMES THE OTHER, an anthology of her short stories, which she also illustrated. Her stories have also been featured in several other anthologies, including two editions of VOICES.
A woman of Jewish descent and the granddaughter of Eastern European immigrants, Rochelle has a close personal connection to Jewish history, which has been a recurring theme throughout much of her writing. Growing up, she was heavily influenced by the Sholom Aleichem stories as well as Fiddler on the Roof. Her novels PLEASE SAY KADDISH FOR ME and FROM SILT AND ASHES, represented by Loiacono Literary Agency and published by W& B Publishers, were born of her desire to share the darker side of these beloved tales--the history that can be difficult to view, much less embrace.
Before becoming an author, Rochelle attended the Kansas City Art Institute, where she studied painting and lithography. She and her husband, Jan, have raised three sons in the Kansas City metro area and now live in Belton, Missouri. When she takes a break from writing and illustrating, Rochelle enjoys swimming, dancing and maintaining her blog, ADDICTED TO PURPLE
