5.0 out of 5 starsWe are all human
Reviewed in the United States on April 30, 2018
Can different generations resolve differences in thinking and acting? Times are changing including sexual mores. Strong emotions are shared between parents and grown children. Accepting responsibility for their actions is a central theme. These appear to be realistic situations with philosophical overtones. At times there are extraneous details that slowed the plot. There seems to be a mixup in the use of character names on rare occasions which might reflect on editing. Parts of the book dealing with cultural differences and similarities are absolutely fascinating. The ending is stupendous and carries a lesson for everyone. This author’s works should be savored.
Story was so good, it was hard to put down. So far all of Ms. Kagans book are wonderful. I read almost all of them and she keeps the reader interested. No boring content, just great writing. Hoping for a new series to come out. Keep up the good work!!
In continuation of the series this book starts with the estranged child of Eidel and Dovid. Throughout the book there is understanding, love, forgiveness and a bonding of this family and its members. What a great ending to the series. I loved it and all of Roberta Kagan's books. I would definitely recommend this book and the series.
The fourth book in the series to me was the best. Written in true Roberta style, the characters came to life. I find myself thinking of the characters even though I have finished the book. I wait in anticipation for Robertas next book.
Disappointed in this book. I feel like some questions were never answered. I would have liked to have heard of what happened with zofia. And the person that Dovid rescued in the foxhole was never explained. Not enough closure on the characters for me.
5.0 out of 5 starsI loved this 4th novel in the series

I've read all of her novels and am never disappointed, nor was I here. I love the strong family, even though the grown children live in different states, when one member needs them, they all come together to support each other. the strength of Eidel and Dovi is apparent in each of their grown children.
5.0 out of 5 starsIntriguing conclusion to the series

I enjoy Roberta Kagan's stories. They are full of real people with real problems and interesting twists and turns. I so enjoy each of the characters almost living their choices with them. Great series.
This book had the opportunity to be a good story, what ruined it for me was the poor editing. Abby and Haley, two very different sisters treated very differently by their mother were often times called by the wrong name. Abby being identified as Haley. It happened so often it really ruined this book for me.
Have read all your books I am not Jewish but have a new appreciation for all their suffering and struggles throughout the ysars.Hatred and prejudice for other people in the world ,Muslims,blacks and Jessica still exists in our world of discrimination .
