Summary

Summary

A collection of correspondence between Eva Weintrobe and Morris Davis, two deaf, Jewish, British young people during the era of the Great Depression. Because most of the letters are from Eva, the heart of the collection lies in the expression of her changing emotions as a young woman asked to leave her family and country for an ardent suitor she had only met in person a few times. Chapters by the couple's son provide historical and family context. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
