History has proven that the poor fight the battles for the wealthy. The wealthy finance the wars to protect their property and lifestyle, but little is written about the real warriors of time who were the families left behind to survive on their own. This is the basis behind creating Dasha and her family, for they are all of us. Dasha was a fourteen-year-old Russian immigrant when she came to America in the 1930s. She marries and has six children before throwing her husband out. The story of her life as a single mother is told by Leni, her youngest daughter, who describes her childhood growing up in Brooklyn during the Depression and World War II. This astounding novel looks at the life of an immigrant who came to America during some of the hardest times in our history, how she faced her demons, and how her children survived. About the Author Violet J. Weiner pursued a creative life after her grandchild was born. She registered in UCLA's creative writing program and was probably the oldest person in her classes. She was also the most insecure, for everyone was on a computer, while she was still using a pen and notebook. Born in Brooklyn, she lived most of her adult life in upstate New York, "but I carried Brooklyn with me wherever I went, for its character and defined street smarts." She worked in an elementary school in upstate New York as an assistant to the principal with 750 children to educate, which was a great time in my life. Publisher's website: http: //
