This book follows two stories; one takes place during the early half of the 20th century about a father and the second is the story of the son he leaves behind when he is killed in the Battle of the Bulge. The book details the mis-adventures of both men as they navigate the Deep South as Jews. This story tracks both Bernard and Mickey Moe Levy as they live life on the shores of the Mississippi River. Bernard Levy has a ‘name twin’ who is nothing like him and the two cross paths leading up to the great Mississippi floods that devastate the area in the 1920s. Bernard is a tough guy who works hard, loves deeply and lives his life unconventionally. He eventually marries Mickey Moe’s mother and settles into a privileged life, assuming the family history of his ‘name twin’ who is no longer alive. He dies during WWII and his vast fortune is never fully recovered. In 1962, Mickey Moe meets the love of his life and he begins the search for his father’s roots to prove himself worthy of girl he loves. What follows is a beautifully documented tour of discovery that is unique to the times. A worthwhile read, well written and fascinating.
