Back Cover:

The words in Tata's letter grip my stomach like a fist. Tata isn't coming home. He wants us to come to America! Tata told me about a coal miner named Mr. Stanley Gawrych who wants a young bride From the old country. So Tata told this Mr. Gawrych that I am young and strong and fit for marriage. I have had good family training and know all I need to take care of a house and a husband. So now Mr. Gawrych has agreed to marry me. Tata promises that we will make a good match. In return. Mr. Gawzych has paid for our passage to America.

"Oh, Babcia," I cried. "How could Tata have done such a terrible thing? I don't want to be a coal miner's bride...I don't want to go to marry a man I do not love."
