Back cover: Come, meet the family. Meet Jacob and Sophie Lieber, newly arrived in America with four children and a suitcase full of dreams. In a cramped Brooklyn apartment they would raise their sprawling clan and begin the monumental task of becoming Americans.
SAM ... the business tycoon, his success sparked by the fire of his mother's ambition. MOLLY ... sensuous and reckless, rebounding from husband to lover to husband. WALTER ... the political activist, raising his only child as an emblem of a perfect future. MOE ... the pampered baby brother, haunted by the atrocities of the Holocaust. And the grandchildren, supremely and confidently American, yet firmly caught in the loving net of the Lieber family.
Spanning three generations of hopes and dreams, fears and desires, here is a stunning saga of a family that you will take to your heart and never let go.
