May this pillow bring you peace. So reads the pillow entrusted, in 1906, to 18-year-old Boshka “Bessie” Markman as she prepares to board a train in Vilna, Lithuania. One of thousands of Jewish immigrants who will leave Europe to escape persecution, she travels to America completely alone. Nearly two years will pass before Bessie finally delivers the pillow to its rightful owner, who turns out to be the love of her life. Will Bessie find the peace that the pillow promises? Or will it elude her? This is not just a story about a pillow, however. Nor is it your usual story about an immigrant to America in the early 20th century. It’s a story of courage, of resilience, and love that never ends.

About the Author:

Linda Bress Silbert was born and raised in New Rochelle, New York, where most of the story of Bessie’s Pillow takes place. That will come as no surprise, however—Linda is Bessie Markman’s granddaughter. Linda and her husband Al, who each have doctorates in education, are the owners of Strong Learning, Inc., a well-known tutoring company in the New York area, and are co-authors of the award-winning book Why Bad Grades Happen to Good Kids. Bessie’s Pillow is Linda’s first novel.
