Dear Friday Fictioneers,

THE GOLDEN DOOR

                                                5 July 1887

Dearest Anya,

“Greetings from the city of New York. Last night I went to watch fireworks and see the new Statue of Liberty. She is magnificent. I can’t wait until you see her with your own eyes.

You ask how I am. What could be better than living in the land of opportunity?  

Angry shouts echoed from downstairs. Shlomo stopped writing his letter and surveyed his one-room apartment. He continued, “There are no Cossacks.” A baby howled in the flat next door. Shlomo’s stomach rumbled. He looked out at the peaceful street and wrote, “All is well.”

The following is a tweaked scene from my first novel PLEASE SAY KADDISH FOR ME. 

Genre: Historical Fiction

MOMENT OF MOMENTS

            Like an impetuous child, Havah hopped from foot to foot.  New York City’s imposing skyline appeared to be painted against gray clouds.

            What kind of life would they have in this unfamiliar place? She wound and unwound the fringes of her shawl around her index finger. Would Americans understand her English?

            Yussel grasped her arm. “Is she there?”

            “Yes, Papa. Like a queen with flowing robes and a crown, she’s standing in the harbor holding her torch high in the air for the entire world to see.

            His sightless eyes brimmed and he smiled serenely. “Yes, I see her.”
