Corinne from The Book Nest has posted her review of Davita’s Harp by Chaim Potok.  Here’s a little snippet:

When we meet Ilana Davita she is around 8 years old, in the late 1930s. She lives in New York City with her writer-activist parents in a non-religious household. The subject for which her parents have nearly radical zeal is, we learn through Davita’s listening in to conversations and nightly meetings, communism. Her parent’s decisions and activism, their friends and political struggles lie at the heart of Davita’s young life – they move frequently and her nights are spent in a strange dream of “Spain” and “Fascism.”
