“Lillian Leyb arrives in New York's Lower East Side in 1924. What she finds is not for her. Her tenacity and insatiable thirst for life and answers lead her to the Alaskan frontier. Lillian's strength and passion are an inspiration and an invitation to ask yourself, 'What would I have done?'”
— Andrea Avantaggio, Maria's Bookshop, Durango, CO
At once heartbreaking, romantic, and completely unforgettable, "Away" is the epic and intimate story of young Lillian Leyb, who emigrates to America after her family is destroyed in a Russian pogrom.
