'The Night Journey' is a 1981 novel by Kathryn Lasky.

Plot Overview

Nana Sashie tells her great-grandchild, Rachel, of her escape from Russia during the Holocaust. Nana Sashie refuses to eat for a week with the intention of dying, and passes away. Before moving to Minnesota, Nana Sashie was married to Reuven Bloom for 40 years.

Open Court Reading took the book and shortened it, giving Rachel the name "Rache". The story starts with a background of the story and the story from Ed's gift - a samovar - and Nana Sashie looking upset. When Rache sneaks into Nana Sashie's room to look at the samovar, she ends up hearing Nana's tale.
