Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1986-10-15)

In her highly successful novel Evergreen and the miniseries that followed, Plain told the story of immigrant Anna Friedman and her love for Paul Werner. Here the focus shifts to Paul's aunt, Hennie De Rivera, from age 18 in 1891 through World War I. As a volunteer, Hennie teaches English at a settlement house where she meets Daniel Roth. Their relationship is frowned upon by her family, but they marry when she becomes pregnant.

Her uncertainty over whether Dan would have married her otherwise is aggravated by his roving eye. The grown-up Paul, Hennie's son Fred, and Leah, an orphan she raises, are also featured. Characterizations are often superficial but sparked by an occasional insight into motivations, hinting of skills better realized in earlier novels. Interest in the family carries the reader forward and will certainly prompt demand. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club dual main selections. Ellen Kaye Stoppel, Drake Univ. Law Lib., Des Moines
