The Road Taken is the story of Rose Smith, born in the very beginning of 1900, the year that ushered in the most rap-idly changing century in history. As her life spans the entire twentieth century, Rose is witness to remarkable change and advances in medicine, technology, politics, and American society.At the age of ten, Rose loses her mother. Raised by her somewhat distant father, her older siblings, and her new stepmother, Rose learns to become independent and strong. As she grows up and begins a family of her own, she sees our country grow too--an America rife with change, forever altered by the onset of devastating wars, the advent of new medicines, and the emerging power and autonomy of women. Rose's life is composed of moments of tragedy and joy, a poignant reflection of the human experience. The Road Taken is a chronicle of a woman and a century like no other, written by bestselling author Rona Jaffe, whose novels have sold more than twenty-three million copies worldwide.
