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.
