Grammy-nominated singer and actress Silber's fiction debut is a sequel to Fiddler on the Roof, a show whose characters she has interpreted on the international stage. Notably, it's a fully realized, thoughtful literary novel that can also stand alone. The story follows Hodel, a young woman imprisoned in Omsk while attempting to reunite with her fiancé, Perchik, a Socialist activist who was taken to a Siberian labor camp. Each of the book's three parts contains a well-developed character arc, and, like Fiddler itself, it contrasts the warmth of Old World traditions with the harsh treatment endured by the Jewish people. The settings have a you-are-there feel, from Hodel's memories of sisterhood and braiding challah back home in Anatevka; to salt-encrusted, remote Siberia, which has its own stark beauty; to the brutality of prison life as the couple's world grows increasingly dark. The strength of their deep romantic bond is emphasized throughout. Fans of the musical and anyone interested in the plight of the Jews in czarist Russia will appreciate this multitalented author's work. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
