Thank you for your interest in Ravenscraig .
An epic romance set at the turn of the 20th century, Ravenscraig, by Sandi Krawchenko Altner, reveals the secrets and lies that tie two families together. Rupert Willows, hides his past and schemes his way to wealth and power. Zev Zigman, a devout Jew, mounts a desperate struggle to bring his family out of czarist Russia and put down roots in Canada.
