From a quiet turn-of-the-century village in  upstate New York to war-torn London, from the bedsides  of the rural poor to the life-and-death urgency of  a great New York City hospital, this is a powerful  epic of three generations of doctors in one  magnificent family. The Farrells-dedicated, brilliant..  and driven to the edge of destruction by a love no  human force could suppress.

From the Paperback edition.

About Belva Plain

Belva Plain - Random Winds
Belva Plain captured readers' hearts with her first novel, Evergreen, which Delacorte published more than 30 years ago. It topped the New York Times best-seller list for 41 weeks and aired as an NBC-TV miniseries. In total, more than 20 of her books have been New York Times best sellers.
Before becoming a novelist,  Belva Plain wrote short stories for many major magazines, but taking care of a husband and three children did not give her the time to concentrate on the novel she had always wanted to write. When she looked back and said she didn't have the time, she felt as though she had been making excuses. In retrospect, she said, "I didn't make the time." But, she reminded us, during the era that she was raising her family, women were supposed to concentrate only on their children. Today 30 million copies of her books are in print.
A Barnard College graduate who majored in history,  Belva Plain enjoyed a wonderful marriage of more than 40 years to Irving Plain, an ophthalmologist. Widowed for more than 25 years, Ms. Plain continued to reside in New Jersey, where she and her husband had raised their family and which was still home to her nearby children and grandchildren until her death in October 2010.


"Wonderful... a  convincing, sweeping novel... a real page-turner."  -- The Philadephia Enquirer.

"Bigger than evergreen." -- John  Barkham Reviews.
