Without his family Jacob's life would be hell. This is partly to do with the fact that he lives in an unstable, sometimes close-minded community, but mostly it has to do with the fact that he tragically lost his family once already, in the Khmelnytsky Massacres. This book shows how Jacob found love in the most hopeless place, enslaved to the pagans, and how that love provided meaning to his life, right up until he was united with her in death. The fruit of their love is the living son who lives on as a lecturer in the Jewish holy land.
