Abstract:

"An epic love story and heart-pounding journey across WWI-era Russia, about a brilliant young scientist racing against Einstein to solve one of the greatest mysteries of the universe."--

Russia, summer 1914. As war with Germany looms and the Czar's army tightens its grip on the local Jewish community, Miri Abramov and her physicist brother, Vanya, are facing an impossible decision. Since their parents drowned fleeing to America, Miri and Vanya have been raised by their babushka, a famous matchmaker who has taught them to protect themselves at all costs: to fight, to kill if necessary, and always to have an escape plan. But with Miri on the verge of becoming one of Russia's only female surgeons, and Vanya hoping to solve the final puzzles of Einstein's elusive theory of relativity, can they bear to leave the homeland that has given them so much? -- adapted from jacket
