Long DescriptionDevorah’s world is shattered by the tragedies of post–Great War Europe: gas poisoning, famine, typhoid, and influenza. Then comes the Night of the Burning, when Cossacks provoke Christian Poles to attack their Jewish neighbors. In 1920, eleven-year-old Devorah and her little sister, Nechama, are the sole survivors of their community. Salvation arrives in the form of a South African philanthropist named Isaac Ochberg, who invites Devorah and Nechama to join his group of two hundred orphans in their journey to safety in South Africa. Although reluctant to leave her homeland, and afraid to forget her family, Devorah follows her sister, who is determined to go to the new country. There Devorah is dealt the greatest blow – Nechama is adopted and taken away from her. In the end, though, Devorah realizes that she is not solely responsible for keeping the past alive, and that she will not betray her beloved parents when she is adopted herself – and finds happiness again.   This gripping first novel, inspired by and based closely on the childhood of the author’s mother-in-law, was recipient of the Sydney Taylor Manuscript Award. The Night of the Burning is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Over the past few months, we have been making some very big changes to the site. You have already seen some of the cosmetic changes but the bulk of the changes have been behind the scenes.

The biggest changes have all happened on the database side of things. We have changed the way we collect, review and display the information for each product.

Although most people won't care about the changes that happen in the background, some of those changes also come with updates to the user interface beyond simple cosmetics.

We hope to have the new version out to the public in the next few weeks and by the end of this year for sure. But we would like to offer a few users the opportunity to try out the new site in the testing environment.

Basically, we would like a few people to just play around in the test area and if something isn't working as expected, just let us know.

If this is something you might be interested in, please contact us. We will set up a user account for you and then you can test.

Just keep in mind, as people are testing, we will continue to make improvements so the test site may change a little from day to day.
