"A piercing work of fiction with a strong claim to being Singer's masterpiece" - Richard Bernstein, "The New York Times". 'Shadows On The Hudson" traces the intertwined lives of a group of Jewish refugees in New York City in the late 1940s. At its centre is Boris Makaver, a pious, wealthy businessman whose greatest trial is his unstable daughter, Anna. A chain of events disrupts the lives of the close-knit community as each refugee struggles to reconcile the horrific past with the difficult present, as Singer explores both the nature of faith and the nature of love in the aftermath of the Holocaust.
