Brooklyn, 1947: in the midst of a blizzard, in a two-family brownstone, two babies are born minutes apart to two women. They are sisters by marriage with an impenetrable bond forged before and during that dramatic night; but as the years progress, small cracks start to appear and their once deep friendship begins to unravel. No one knows why, and no one can stop it. One misguided choice; one moment of tragedy. Heartbreak wars with happiness and almost but not quite wins.
From debut novelist Lynda Cohen Loigman comes The Two-Family House, a moving family saga filled with heart, emotion, longing, love, and mystery.
You might find yourself, not wanting this book to end. Yes, an urban tale with a lot of rich and nostalgic prose of stories many of us were told of the olden days. Take two Jewish couples who are neighbors, who have children at the same time. Truly, it is the beginning of days, we possibly miss..and an everyday mystery as well. Wonderful fiction from Lynda Cohen Loigman.
