    "A Day of Small Beginnings" by Lisa Pearl Rosenbaum ~ A Polish American Jewish family's search for roots provides the gripping drama in this first novel. Neither reverential nor simplistic this is a stirring story of secrets and discovery and, sometimes, mystical connection especially for those who wish they had asked about family history before it was too late.

Nine people are trapped in the Indian consulate's visa office after a devastating earthquake. As they start to melt down emotionally, Uma, a grad student, suggests they each tell a story about one thing in their lives. The stories they tell are incredible, and you will feel as though you have known and understand each character as they wait for rescue or death. An amazing read.
