KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the story of another immigrant group that came and helped make America. The hard-working clean and skillful Bohemians brought with them glass-making and cabinet working skills and musical ability. This story concerns one little family-back in 1892- and their difficulties in making their way in Chicago as members of a minority group, discriminated against even among foreigners. Better community relations, a world's fair, meeting with the composer Dvorak, and -- kernel of the plot -- the loss and eventual recovery of Anna's violin- combine for a tale of friendly relations, sturdy values, and good inter-cultural material, in a readable story.
