Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

Four generations of remarkable women from a Jewish-American family recount their triumphs, tragedies, scandals and love affairs. Fourth-generation Sarah, the historian, discusses the importance of cultivating and documenting these memories for family fulfillment and personal discovery. Melissa Manchester's performance as matriarch Sarah Solomon reveals her command of an authentic Yiddish dialect. This Grammy award winner navigates effortlessly in and out of this dialect as the colorful story unfolds and the flow of events introduces the listener to a variety of characters transcending time and gender barriers. Manchester pours high energy into the interpretation of these women, waxing her performance magnificent! B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
