About this product
- DescriptionBeginning in 1920, paralleling Hitler's rise to power, and encompassing World War II, Bleva Plain's new vel weaves the threads of history into a brilliant tapestry. As vivid events plunge the world into a dizzying vortex of change, an unforgettable American Family must summon up extraordinary courage to face birth, death, murder, illicit passion, and a great tragedy... and one passionate man must fight his own war against evil -- a war that can be won only with hor, integrity, and love. Belva Plain is a talented tale-spinner with almost Dickensian ability to keep her stories going. -- The Philadelphia Inquirer. A powerful vel... ather winner... Ms. Plain weaves her story like a master craftsman entwining the colorful threads of each character's life embroidered with the golden strands of historical details. -- Rave Reviews.
- Author BiographyBelva Plain captured readers' hearts with her first novel, Evergreen, which Delacorte published more than 30 years ago. It topped the New York Times best-seller list for 41 weeks and aired as an NBC-TV miniseries. In total, more than 20 of her books have been New York Times best sellers. Before becoming a novelist, Belva Plain wrote short stories for many major magazines, but taking care of a husband and three children did not give her the time to concentrate on the novel she had always wanted to write. When she looked back and said she didn't have the time, she felt as though she had been making excuses. In retrospect, she said, I didn't make the time. But, she reminded us, during the era that she was raising her family, women were supposed to concentrate only on their children. Today 30 million copies of her books are in print. A Barnard College graduate who majored in history, Belva Plain enjoyed a wonderful marriage of more than 40 years to Irving Plain, an ophthalmologist. Widowed for more than 25 years, Ms. Plain continued to reside in New Jersey, where she and her husband had raised their family and which was still home to her nearby children and grandchildren until her death in October 2010.
