"I sit here all day long, year after year. I remember. I remember all sorts of things."
Rachel has been warned by her parents not to discuss the past with her great-grandmother. But Nana Sashie has other plans. She begins telling Rachel about her family's flight from the pogroms and other dangers of Tsarist Russia. The daring escape plan was Sashie's own idea-and she was only nine years old.
