"The Third Daughter"
Inspired by Shalom Aleichem’s short story, “The Man From Buenos Aires,” “The Third Daughter” is a frightening journey into the New World of the late 1900s. When succeeding in the nascent art of tango, Batya finds courage in the face of danger and hope in hours of despair, and bravely struggles to free herself from bondage while bringing down the powerful pimps’ union. Author Talia Carner’s previous heart-wrenching suspense novels were hailed for exposing society’s ills. Her award-winning personal essays appeared in several publications.
