This book sucked. I read the first hundred pages and then gave up. the author may be a historian but he doesn't write to keep you interested. He gets bogged down into the minutiae of the family tree.

A novel about four Jewish women and the spectrum of Jewish life in New York, from the infamous triangle factory and the low bowery dives to the dazzling spendor of Berliners Department Store on Fifth Avenue. It is also about America in the years before WWI, about suffrage and labor- the two great movements that were sweeping the country- and about the people who were involved in them.
