The Tin Horse
A rich multigenerational story about the intense, often fraught bond sisters share and the dreams and sorrows that lay at the heart of the immigrant experience. It has been more than sixty years since Elaine Greenstein's twin sister, Barbara, ran away, cutting off contact with her family forever. While sifting through old papers as she prepares to move to Rancho Mañana, Elaine is stunned to find a possible hint to Barbara's whereabouts. It pushes her to confront the fierce love and bitter rivalry of their youth during the 1920s and '30s, in the Los Angeles Jewish neighborhood of Boyle Heights.

Beatiful written story and very convincing. She writes like you are sitting across from her and she's telling the story to you alone. I appreciate more now what it must have been like to grow up Jewish in America during WW II.
