LK Hunsaker's Reviews > Evergreen
by Belva Plain
An epic tale of a family of immigrants who fled to America in the wake of the rise of the Nazis that sweeps through to the Vietnam War. There is so much in this one book that at times it can feel a little overwhelming. Years pass by. Children are suddenly grown. And yet it works. It gives the sense of how quickly things changed in such a short time in America, and along with it, how the grateful immigrants raised families that became less grateful, less appreciative.
Evergreen is a beautiful, deep, full read that shows several sides clearly and without malice toward any one group or viewpoint. Highly recommended for all history buffs and for romantics.
