(From the publisher):
When Nathan Hollander and his niece Sophie find themselves trapped by snow in a house in the mountains, Nathan passes the time by recounting their family history. In this story within the story, Nathan's tale spans generations of a Jewish family as it wanders the globe: from Magnus, who began a twenty-one-year walk from Poland to Holland in 1648, to the itinerant clockmakers who followed him, to Manhattan's Project.
