    On Zoom. A remarkable debut novel about a small Jewish village in the Polish forest that is so secluded no one knows it exists . . . until now. For decades, the tiny Jewish shtetl of Kreskol existed in happy isolation, virtually untouched and unchanged. Divided between those embracing change and those clinging to its old-world ways, the people of Kreskol will have to find a way to come together . . . or risk their village disappearing for good.
