    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Leaving her husband and children in Seattle traveling back and forth to Russia pursuing a career, Brodinsky Miller discovers she’s writing her own chapter in a book of three generations—her grandparents’ drives to escape the Jewish worlds of Tsarist Russia, her immigrant parents’ hopes for their marriage in America—and now her turn to reach for meaning and purpose: each a generation of aspirations—first theirs, now hers.

    Readership:
    WHEN THE RIVER ICE FLOWS, I WILL COME HOME will appeal to readers who love history, and the investigative/seeking mind. This memoir will also appeal to the modern American woman in search of the motherhood/otherhood balance, as well as to those for whom Judaism is a constant question, What does it mean to me to be Jewish? It will attract readers interested in Jewish cultural identity, the immigrant experience, the balance of career and family, and Russian and Soviet history.
