Ethel's Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems

In 1953, Ethel Rosenberg, a devoted wife and loving mother, faces the electric chair. People say she’s a spy, a Communist, a traitor, a red. How did she get here? In a series of heart-wrenching poems, Ethel's story unfolds. The child of Jewish immigrants, Ethel Greenglass grows up on New York City’s Lower East Side. She dreams of being an actress and a singer but finds romance and excitement in the arms of the charming Julius Rosenberg. Both are ardent supporters of rights for workers, but are they spies? Who is passing atomic secrets to the Soviets? Why does everyone seem out to get them?

This first book for young readers about Ethel Rosenberg, told in verse, is a fascinating portrait of a commonly misunderstood figure from American history, and vividly relates a story that continues to have relevance today. It's a tale of beliefs, loves, secrets, betrayals, and injustices that will resonate long after teens have turned the last page.

Description

"This account follows Julius’ 1950 arrest for espionage, soon followed by her own. It explores the impact on their young sons, the trial, and the public response. Even if readers are already aware of how the story ends, this work, which utilizes a variety of forms of poetry and is enhanced with historic photos, will read like a thriller complete with passion, politics, and family betrayal. The subject’s voice, strength, intelligence, and heart ring out on every page." — Kirkus Reviews
