Five sisters in Jerusalem, 1913, try to find their lost brother in New York with the help of a photograph.

Jerusalem, 1913. The long, hot summer drags on for the Bernstein sisters – Rifka, Chava, Naomi, Dvora and Shoshanna. Their brother Isaac has been in New York for almost a year, and still the family has heard nothing from him. So when their frivolous aunt Mimi suggests that the girls have a photograph taken for their mother's birthday, they come up with a plan. Can they use the photograph to find Isaac? Will the family ever be reunited?

About the Author:

Adele Geras was born in Jerusalem on March 15th, 1944. Her father was in the Colonial Office, so she moved around all over the place while she was very young: Nigeria, North Borneo, the Gambia. She attended boarding-school in England (Roedean) from the age of 11. After Roedean she graduated from St Hilda's College, Oxford. She has worked as an actress and as a French teacher.
