A.M. Rossoff is a recovering lawyer who is starting over.  Growing up, he worked side by side with his handyman father, who regaled him with tales of his ancestors -- including revolutionaries in Eastern Europe.

He made it through college and suffered through law school, working odd jobs and writing poetry on the side.  After practicing law for many years, he returned to his first loves -- manual labor and writing.  Today he writes full time and this novel is his first -- a family saga based on true events that took place in Europe and American in the 20th century.

A.M. Rossoff is a member of several writers' groups in the Phoenix, Arizona area.
