The road taken
Bestselling author Rona Jaffe delivers a story of twentieth -century America . . . a story of choices . . . of fate . . . of the road taken by chance and by destiny, full of passion and heartache, promise and fulfillment . . . .At the helm of this incredible epic is Rose Smith, an independent and adaptable woman who meets the challenges of this rapidly changing century with her three daughters. These four women -- all different, all fiercely-willed -- will make courageous, sometimes reckless choices in their lives as they move boldly through a new world. Yet they will be united by an inner strength that will withstand life's most turbulent demands, helping each to accept tragedy, embrace joy and, ultimately, find redemption.

Sometimes you just want to read a story & not think too much. That's when an author like Rona Jaffe comes in handy. This is a novel about a family spanning the twentieth century with it's main character, Rose, being born in 1900. We first meet her in 1910 at her mother's funeral & then follow her through courtship, marriage, and family until the book closes in 1999. Along the way the reader experiences, two world wars, the Spanish influenza epidemic, the Depression, polio epidemics, the beginnings o the women's sand gay rights movement and the AIDS epidemic all seen through the experiences of various family members. Hardly realistic, but emminently readable this is the perfect book to read on a cold & snowy weekend with a pot of tea at your side.
