Chasing Echoes

Illustrated by George Schall

Chasing Echoes is a heartfelt and offbeat tale about dysfunctional family dynamics, self-discovery and rebirth in the wake of loss.

Malka, the black sheep of her family, learns that her relatives are making a decades-in-the-planning pilgrimage to their grandfather’s pre-Holocaust home in Poland...and she wasn’t invited. After guilt-tripping herself a ticket as the self-appointed “Keeper of the Family Archives,” it becomes clear that everyone’s brought more baggage than just their suitcases.
