From Newbery media winner Karen Hesse comes an unforgettable story of an immigrant family's journey to America. "America," the girl repeated. "What will you do there?" I was silent for a little time. "I will do everything there," I answered. Rifka knows nothing about America when she flees from Russia with her family in 1919. But she dreams that in the new country she will at last be safe from the Russian soldiers and their harsh treatment of the Jews. Throughout her journey, Rifka carries with her a cherished volume of poetry by Alexander Pushkin. In it, she records her observations and experiences in the form of letters to Tovah, the beloved cousin she has left behind. Strong-hearted and determined, Rifka must endure a great deal: humiliating examinations by doctors and soldiers, deadly typhus, separation from all she has ever known and loved, murderous storms at sea, detainment on Ellis Island--and is if this is not enough, the loss of her glorious golden hair. Based on a true story from the author's family, Letters from Rifka presents a real-life heroine with an uncommon courage and unsinkable spirit.

Karen Hesse is a celebrated children's author and one of the very best historical fiction writers today. As a child growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, she faced illness, family problems, and feelings of isolation. Escaping her problems through books and writing, she earned positive reinforcement from teachers and her neighborhood librarian. Awaiting the birth of her first child years later, she began reading children's literature, inspired especially by the works of Katherine Paterson. This biography traces the inspirational process behind such works as her Newbery Medal-winner Out of the Dust.
