Rose and Helen. Abe and Mort. This is a story of brothers who share a duplex. Mort and Rose have all girls while Abe and Helen have all sons. A winter delivery of babies changes things for these two families forever. I was unsure about the story from its description, but I’m so glad that I read it. What a transformation we see in the characters. A little concern and love drove some people together and others apart. The lives of the two families are greatly entwined, especially with Abe and Mort running a box company business together. Abe was lovable, Mort was not.
I’m reluctant to say too much and spoil the surprise. I certainly enjoyed the story though that challenged families and women’s lib and even depression and grief.
Thanks, St. Martin’s Press, for providing me a copy to review in my own words.
