Rich Gentile falls in love with well-to-do Jew who wants to be a writer. Families disapprove; they marry anyway and are both disinherited.
Lily and Harry go through lots of rough spots and hardships in the first part, til Harry is successful, which is when the couple's troubles really begin.
Lily is bored and becomes obsessed with their kids when Harry is writing, Harry ignores her and the kids when working.
Neither seems very likable, although both are presented sympathetically, and their troubles

I loved this book because it takes us through the main character, Lily's, entire life: from her childhood trauma and her relationship with her parents all through her rocky adolescence and transformation into a gorgeous young woman. The way all of this molded her into the type of mother and wife she would be, and ultimately why some of her actions may have been misinterpreted, undermined, or unappreciated. When given both sides of the same relationship, we see how there errors or not one-sided n ...more
This is a romance that was recommended to me by my mother from her neighbor. It was one of that neighbors favorite books. Mom read it and liked it so it was duly passed to me. I started it and wanted to keep reading and not do anything else. But, as the story progressed I got frustrated. When it ended I kinda felt cheated, like why did I read this?! The male character to me was unlikable, and I thought all the characters had their flaws that made them not as likable to the reader. I gave it 3 st ...more

A satisfying historical romance of the Depression, through the founding of Modern Israel and the glorious time for people with money that often can't buy you love. The stars aren't posting, but I give it 4*

There was nothing remarkable about this book. Although Harry was a successful liar, the ending left a lot to be desired. It was just to read, nothing special
Aurora Lee
Worse book ever!!!! Do not be deceived by the most amazing title ever.
Formulaic saga in staccato narration... Yet can't help being riveted to find out how the lives of characters turned out
Som en prinsessa.

Excellent read, couldn't put down. Family saga.
This novel is a very different kind of one. It has shown the realities of a not so happy marriage. I'm not going to elaborate more on this one cause it's definitely going to be spoiler. All I can say that the only part that I did like in the story was the first part and the last part. The last part was really a surprise for I was not really expecting that kind of ending. But All in all it was a good read but worth repeating.
couldn't finish it. I gave it a good effort, kept pushing myself through thinking it HAD to get better. But it just got worse and worse. So I finally quit, have better things to do with my time that read bad books.

The couple gave up everything in order to get married then page after page just keep screwing that up, too. And are screwing up their kids, too.
this book was ok but just to much detail on this that i think had no point
This has to be my favorite books ever! I re-read it at least once every year.
