Proud, passionate, yearning for life, they came from the Lower East Side to the glittering heights of San Francisco. A family in search of the American dream: Jacob, whose newfound wealth couldn't bring him peace.... Sara, who sacrificed her daughter in the name of love... Shlomo, who paid the price for keeping the family's disgrace a secret... Rachel, whose forbidden love for one man drove her into the arms of another... Doris, who achieved fame and happiness beyond her wildest dreams. Here is the tempestuous rags-to-riches story of a family who battled to survive in a brawling new world, yet never lost touch with their spiritual heritage.

Not a great novel-a bit unbelievable that so many love at first sight proposals!!! But the struggle of individuals seeking acceptance and love from family seemed very real.

Once again, Ms. Freeman does not disappoint. Very touching story.
