Description
The masterful author of Class Reunion offers this ambitious story of choices, chances and fate, spanning four generations of an unforgettable American family.   Rose Smith is born in the very beginning of 1900, the year that ushered in the most rapidly changing century in history. At the age of ten, Rose loses her mother and must learn to become independent and adaptable. As she grows up and begins a family of her own, she and her three daughters are a vital part of the country’s rapid growth during a turbulent era.   These women—all different, all fiercely-willed—will make courageous, sometimes reckless choices in their lives as they move boldly through a new world. Yet they will be united by an inner strength that will withstand life’s most chaotic demands, helping each to accept tragedy, embrace joy and, ultimately, find redemption.   PRAISE FOR RONA JAFFE   “Reading Rona Jaffe is like being presented with a Cartier watch: you know exactly what you’re getting and it’s exactly what you want.”— Cosmopolitan   “Vivid and trenchant…Wry and very readable…A minor genius.”— New York Times Book Review   “Jaffe has not lost her wit, her keen eye for human frailties and her ear for the small but telling remark.”— Publishers Weekly
