The last book in the "Almonds and Raisins" trilogy. This book follows the third generation of Sandberg's and Moritz's. It follows their journey as they have now cast off the traditional Jewish life and make their own way in the modern world.

Just the same as the previous two books in the series it is very lengthy and descriptive. In some places may even be seen as dull. Sarah Sandberg is still the matriarch of the two families however her influence is losing its grip on the youngest generation.

I tend to like these books by this author usually before, during and after WWII in liverpool. I have heard so many of these type of stories from my family originally from England and I usually pass them onto mum
The final in the trilogy takes the reader into the emotional, religious, and sexual changes that make the older generations reflect upon what is right, and what must be accepted, as the years pass by.
I just love Maisie Mosco's family sagas. I believe that this was the last book in this particular series.
