By Sandi Krawchenko Altner     Ravenscraig begins in a poor
village in Russia. It is the late 1800's and the czar has ordered the destruction of a Jewish village once again. The Zigman family, struggling to survive has made the brave decision to escape their brutal existence in Russia and travel to Zevs father who awaits them in Canada. Even though the journey is risky and they will be separated for a long period of time, the family believes they will be together again and find the peace and happiness they desperately seek. The Willows family is on their way up. Rupert Willows has reinvented himself and is enjoying one success after another as Winnipeg grows by leaps and bounds. His unending desire for wealth and celebrity nourishes his scheming, shallow ways and he will not stop until he's reached the top. Over many years and many miles, these two families live and love, win and lose and their paths cross in the most unexpected ways. From the pogroms of Russia, the exciting growth of Winnipeg all the way to the maiden voyage of the Titanic, this novel spans across generations of families, friendship, and survival. Highly recommend this captivating novel which is rather long but completely enjoyable the entire way through. Do not miss this page turner filled with inspirational characters and the simplest of themes, hope. BUT TODAY!! Ravenscraig
