Rachel ignores her parents wishes and persuades her great-grandmother to relate the story of her escape from Russia, stories of a time when Jews were forced to serve in the czar's army or were murdered in pogroms. Because Rachel's parents think Nana Sashie should not be troubled with thoughts of the past, Rachel begins to go, secretly, to Nana Sashie's bedroom late at night. There she listens as the old woman's memories spring to life, creating characters that become as real to Rachel as members of her own family.
