Summary
In 1947, Yitzhak Goldah, a Holocaust survivor, arrives in Savannah, GA, to live with his only remaining relatives, Abe and Pearl Jesler. The Jeslers are Conservative Jews who want to make sure he fits into life in the American South, so they change his name to Ike and put him to work in Abe's shoe store. However, Yitzhak falls in love with a young widow who is a member of the Reformed Jewish community; he wants to pursue his calling as a journalist; and mobsters on the docks want bribes from Abe for his shipments of Italian shoes. Then a traumatized woman from Yitzhak's past shows up claiming to be his fiancée. Rabb views the Jim Crow South through the eyes of a concentration camp survivor. He doesn't shy away from what it took to come out of a camp alive; but the author also demonstrates the goodness in the hearts of his Southern Jewish community
