The Little Bride by Anna Solomon

"The Little Bride is stranger than truth and truer than fiction...a very intensely imagined book, an elegantly written pocket of forgotten history."

Inspired by the little-known real history of the Jewish settlement of the Great Plains, The Little Bride is an elegantly written tale of a sixteen-year-old Russian mail-order bride stranded on the South Dakota prairie, married to a man twice her age, and falling increasingly in love with her nineteen-year-old stepson.
