Carrington MacDuffie gives an inspired narration of this sweeping Jewish-American family saga spanning the twentieth century. In the early 1930s, Belle, who is from a conservative family, marries Eastern European immigrant Isaac Kaplow. First-rate narration and descriptive writing combine to immerse the listener in the lives of Belle, Isaac, and their children, Sophy and Vivie, as they experience major historical events, including the Depression, WWII, the postwar Manhattan art scene, McCarthyism, and the Civil Rights movement. While the family has its successes and failures, they always look to the future while never forgetting their European Jewish heritage. MacDuffie's skilled pacing and expressive handling of dialogue illuminate the lives of an appealingly ordinary family that is living through extraordinary times.
