In the years after World War II, a woman is torn between two brothers in this romantic family saga by a New York Timesâ€“bestselling author.
When Brooklyn-born Barnard graduate Kathy Ross travels to postâ€“World War II Hamburg to help displaced refugees, she never expects to fall instantly, irrevocably in love. But David Kohn, a young American physician, is tormented by the deaths of his parents in the Holocaust, and uncertain about the future.
Kathy impulsively marries Davidâ€™s cousin Philâ€”a decision that will have far-reaching consequences for everyone involved. The charismatic heir apparent to a fur empire, Phil gives Kathy everything she could ever want, including a cherished son. But her marriage is not what it appears, and through the yearsâ€”even as she forges her own careerâ€”Kathy is haunted by her yearning for the one man she cannot forget . . .
