At the start of World War II, Jack and Sadie Rosenblum flee Berlin for London with their baby daughter, Elizabeth. Upon arrival, Jack receives a pamphlet from the German Jewish Aid Committee on how to act like a proper Englishman. He follows it to the letter - Saville Row suits, the BBC, trips to Covent Garden, a Jaguar—and it works like a charm. The Rosenblums settle into a prosperous new life. Just one item on the list eludes him: An Englishman must be a member of a golf course. No golf course in England at the time will admit a Jew. But the list is now the guiding document in Jack's life, and he must check off the final item. So he decides to build his own golf club in the Dorset countryside. For the second time, Sadie leaves a home she loves. And despite ancient customs, British snobbery, mythical beasts, and a shrinking bank account, they triumph once again.

"Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English" is a beautifully written tale of Jack and Sadie Rosenblum's adaptation to life in England after emigrating from Germany. Upon arrival Jack is given a booklet with a list of helpful tips on assimilating into English culture. It is both humorous and touching how Jack tries to follow each tip and adds a few of his own.

Without going into too much detail, after going through some difficult times, Jack and Sadie become an interesting mix of their old Eastern European culture and their new British culture.

I recommend "Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English" for several reasons. It provides some insight into the assimilation of Jews fleeing from Nazi persecution leading up to World War II into British life, it is heartwarming, humorous and extremely well written.

I first came upon Natasha Solomons' The House at Tyneford: A Novel & re-immersed myself in that magical Dorset bayside life I'd known during summer holidays, this time as seen through the eyes of a 19 yo Viennese saving her life by learning to be a housemaid... then the title of this author's first effort caught my eye, & it was deja vu all over again ;-}

Perhaps you need to have been a "stranger in a strange land" all your life to "grok" the impact of that title - I was! Then you've got to have fled the land of your birth family B4 the march of people intent on killing off "your kind." I emigrated at 22 to the Land of the Free & Home of the Brave cuz I wanted to live somewhere big enough that folks stopped telling me I wasn't one of 'em nor fit it.

Mr. Rosenblum lands in London from Berlin in the mid-1930s, a young husband w/a wife distraught from leaving her mother, her brother, her home. Back then, of course, there were no such things as grief counselors so Sadie, even though she was among other bereft young mothers, sinks into a fugue that caring for her daughter, already given the very English name: Elizabeth & chatting away in that new language, cannot assuage.

Taking the exhortation of the immigration official to heart Jack, with his smattering of English, his ebullient nature & earnest drive sets out to become a proper Englishman. Sadie has not a word of English & refuses to learn cuz it'll mean her mother, her brother, her childhood, her reality will no longer exist. Little Elizabeth, their only shared hope, purpose & connection, grows up bilingual... & so the years pass & Jack makes a fortune at the carpet factory he bought with his escape money, moving his little family out of cramped displaced Jews' ghettos to where houses have gardens, trees.

Then war is enjoined & he turns his looms over to the War Effort into the care of his foreman cuz anti-German fervor has the British government separating husband from wife & daughter. During Jack's odyssey as a detainee among thousands, he's on a train ride into the southwest where he gets a glimpse of a countryside he never knew existed.

With The War over, Jack is restored to his family & factory & determines that the next step in completing his Englishness is to join a golf club. Naturally, he's rejected, at every one of 'em, so he decides to build his own, from a booklet by Bobby Green, the American world class golfer.

So begins the next transformation of this City Gent: with his peaches'n'cream daughter all ready for college & the princess after whom she's named soon to be crowned, Jack moves Sadie out into deep Dorset where everyone speaks with very thick accents. He then writes to Bobby Green, inviting him to the Coronation Match he's going to put on. While he's never held a golf club, Jack finds he loves writing letters to Bobby, & keeps letting him know the progress & funny stories as the course takes shape.

Sadie sets about reviving the dilapidated cottage beside Jack's fields & is revived by her memories of her grandparents' cottage & her childhood summers spent there long go...B4 loss, sorrow & war. While Jack works the land with the local men who take to calling him Mr. Rose-in-Bloom, she discovers the abandoned garden & vows she'll nurture every weed cuz that's what Nazis called the Jews = weeds to be eradicated.

Then rationing ends so people can put on a splendid spread for the Coronation & Sadie begins lovingly & healingly to make every recipe in her mother's cookbook, thus delighting the village Coronation Celebration Committee women, who murmur that perhaps one day she'll tell them her story.

This is a grand & joyfilled read: breathless & a trifle grammatically insecure as ALL immigrants are when telling their stories in the language of their adopted land, & I loved every single moment, even if I did have to read some sentences a few times until I got 'em!

Amongst the vivid descriptions of a wondrous countryside & some hilarious escapades the locals entice both Jack & Sadie into, are Golden Rule Lessons about Waking Every Day w/a Refreshed Heart, Loyalty, Honesty, Courage, Tolerance & Endurance.

I was worried this book was going to go down the common story path of an expat feeling like he doesn't belong, resenting his new neighbors and home, instead this story is about loss, getting on with life, understanding what you're good at in life and making the most of it, and most of all love. It is beautifully written, light, beautiful prose but with deep insight into characters and their motivations.
The Rosenblums escape Nazi Germany and settle in London. Jack wants to fit in, he buys the right suits, drives a Jaguar, and in the meantime builds a big carpet business. The only thing that eludes him as a true englishman, is a membership to a country club. When he is not allowed one, he decides to move the family to the country and build his own. His wife doesn't share in his enthusiasm, she just wants to cook (and cook she does!) and remember her family and her loss. No details are given, but this is WWII and they are Jewish, so we can imagine what end they met. In the course of building his golf course Jack survives all kinds of set backs and creates great new friendships. He uses almost all his money on the project. At one point, after several more disasters and set backs, Jack is made to realize what is really important in life. I will not tell you how, that's the story, but suffice it to say it is beautiful and inspirational.
Wonderfully written, and delightful!

This is a well written, humorous, and heart-felt book., It is a window into the past, which is well worth reading. Anyone with family members who escaped from Europe, and took refuge in either England or America --- before or after World War Two --- will recognize the longing-to-belong, expressed in Mr. Rosenblums' behavior. I loved this book and also enjoyed Natasha Solomons' next book. I think that I am a developing fan.

Loved this quirky little book that illustrated just how hard it is for people to start a new life in a new country. We all should be more loving and supportive of immigrants. Mr. Rosenblum perseveres against all odds; bless him!

I adored this evocatively writen novel. There were notes at the end about the author that indicated she was diagnosed with dyslexia at 13...so her understanding of struggling against all odds is from the heart. She wanted to be a writer, but in this novel, her first, the lead character is a determined Jewish immigrant to England who longs to 'belong'. The journey of belonging and finding themselves in a new way is the heart of the story. This tale is at once sad, and at times tragic, but the overall feeling is one of wanting to keep reading to find out what happens to Jack and Sadie. I couldn't put the book down...smile. I'm looking forward to reading this author's next book!
