Topic: Alina Adams Book Presentation of “The Nesting Dolls: A Russian-Jewish Family Saga”
“The Nesting Dolls is a vividly rendered, sweeping historical novel. Alina Adams deftly portrays three generations of women, beautifully weaving their coming of age stories about love, sacrifice, family, and ultimately survival. I absolutely devoured this compulsively readable gem of a novel.” (Jillan Cantor, USA Today bestselling author of The Lost Letter and In Another Time).
“A moving saga of three generations of women determined to triumph over the forces of history no matter the cost. The Nesting Dolls is memorable story of courage that is both inspiring and bittersweet.” (David R. Gillham, New York Times bestselling author of City of Women and Annelies).
“The author’s wry Soviet-Jewish humor enlivens the well-developed characters, who make fatal mistakes as well as selfless sacrifices. This is a satisfying, life-affirming saga.” – Publisher’s Weekly.
