One Amber Bead
One Amber Bead is a rich, radiant story of two Polish cousins, whose lives diverge dramatically in the yellow wood of the 20th Century—Evie, who encounters the challenges of an immigrant’s daughter in Chicago, and Jadzia, who witnesses the devastation of her homeland during WW II—and yet who find in that divergence a solidarity of humanity and compassion engendered in their shared heritage. Melding the best traditions of the epistolary novel, the historical novel, the family saga, and the romance, One Amber Bead glows with a unique hue—rich in story and detail, resplendent in the recognition of how our lives are both altered and remain the same, even through the turbulence of familial and cultural change.
Rebecca Thaddeus’s One Amber Bead speaks to the hearts of all those Americans whose ancestors emigrated to this country at the beginning of the 20th Century. In her moving and compelling narrative, she captures our need to maintain our ties with those who were left behind.
