The captivating chronicle of four generations of the Sandonitsky family - immigrants from a Polish ghetto. This is the powerful drama of their struggle to achieve the American dream without losing their spiritual hreitage as success drives them westward to Oakland, California. A complelling novel about human needs, passions and conflicts which reach tempestuous heights.
JACOB whose newfound wealth could never fill the aching void inside him. .
SARA who sacrificed everything in the name of love -even her daughter.
SHLOMO who kept the family's disgrace a secret, and paid the price.
RACHEL whose forbidden love for one man drove her into the arms of another.
DORIS a Cinderella who achieved fame and happiness beyond her wildest dreams.
