A Dressmaker's Threads : The Life and the Legacy of My Russian Immigrant Mother
by Evelyn Lerman




Overview -
"A Dressmaker's Threads: The Life and The Legacy of My Russia Immigrant Mother" is about a remarkable woman, a dressmaker who, with a sick husband and an infant, escaped from the Czar's Armies, landing at Ellis Island in 1920. Her courage, her fearlessness, her work ethic, her sense of humor and her love for education drove her to 18-hour workdays and success. To her "success" meant having the ability to take care of her sick husband (before the days of medical insurance) and sending her three daughters to college. She did it all with grace and joy, reveling in her children's progress, learning English with an accent she could never forgive in herself, and enjoying life to its fullest. Her legacy lives on in her children, grandchildren, and even the great-grandchildren who never knew her.
