Barukh, in The Greenhorn, is a newly arrived immigrant in Montreal and is an oddity for reasons beyond the winter coat he continues to wear long into spring. As a dying request, Amalia, in Last Love, asks her husband to find her a young Parisian lover. In Edgias Revenge, Rella, a former kapo, loses her identity over the course of two decades in Montreal to the woman whose life she spared in the camps.

Fran?ois is the account of a crumbling marriage- in it, Leah takes on an imaginary lover. The wife in Little Red Bird imagines kidnapping a baby from the nursery in the hospital so that she will be able to love, nurture, and raise a child of her own. These are stories of exile. Of life, loss, and love. In Survivors, Chava Rosenfarb takes the Yiddish short story, in the tradition of Isaac Bashevis Singer, and extends it with touches of Philip Roth and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
