"First published in Hebrew as Yetomah L'Shtei Imahos by Feldheim Publishers (2003)"--t.p. verso.
Includes a postscript by the author.
In this fictionalized autobiography, based on a true account of a handicapped widow's forced separation from her infant daughter, Cohen retells the story of Leah-Leiche Fruchter's years of longing and searching, legal battle, and the subsequent destruction brought by the Nazis. In the worlds of pre- and post-war Hungarian Jewry, young Leichu moves between two communities and their divergent lifestyles. A story of separation and reunion, of pure faith and acceptance of G-d's will, and of triumph over despair.
