World War I has ended, and Ella, the oldest of the five sisters, who dreams of singing and dancing in the theater, is discovered by a Broadway talent scout. It seems that she will have her chance at a theatrical career after all, starting in vaudeville. But her thoughts are also on Jules, just returned from the War, and marriage. Once again a loving family provides the support needed to make the right decision.

REVIEWS
School Library Journal
"This excellent audiobook will find an eager audience in schools and public libraries which need materials reflecting the Jewish culture or serve children who enjoy family stories such as 'Little Women' and 'Little house on the Prairie.'"

The Providence Journal
"This is a gentle tale of a very different time, and there's value to that. Toren, a theater and TV actress, reads with an attention to accent that helps create characters from the daughters and those who surround them."

Today's Librarian
"The joys of Jewish traditions are interwoven throughout in such a way that all listeners can understand and appreciate them. Children also will learn about life before TV and electronics. Toren lends her beautiful speaking voice to the tales, differentiating the characters in an understated storytelling style."

The Horn Book
"Sydney Taylor's All-of-a-Kind Family books remain a staple with readers who enjoy building long, comfortable relationships with fictional families. Narrator Suzanne Toren's voice is every bit as comfortable as the stories themselves."
