Publisher's Summary

In The Auerbach Will, the novel by America's most renowned chronicler of the rich, ambitious young Essie Litsky defies a rigid upbringing by immigrant Russian Jewish parents to achieve wealth and success. But her children tear Essie and her husband Jack Auerbach's family apart in fights over their fortune, and Essie finds that money will not mend broken lives.

Stephen Birmingham concludes this complex family saga, set in the Park Avenue world he first portrayed in the best-selling Our Crowd, with a surprise revelation. The story of Essie Auerbach and the Auerbach Will is unforgettable.

Interesting and Engaging

I was surprised I liked this book so much. An exploration of the friction between America’s established German Jews and the newly immigrated Russian Jews at the start of the 20th century. Also, a story about how money can corrupt values and relationships. Very well narrated by a full cast.
