Author Gloria Goldreich's prose reads pleasantly and easily. I'd be interested in checking out more of her writing in the popular magazines she has written for, or another of her books.

For Sheldon Horowitz. 1. ALTHOUGH THE MORNING SUN blazed across the fields, turning the newly blossoming wheat a dull gold, it was cool in the attic and the tall girl who stood naked beneath the beams shivered. Stooping slightly, she looked at herself in the long mirror, its frame shrouded in dust and its glass cloudy despite the fact that she had wiped it with a damp cloth only minutes before.

It was the sheer habit of years that awakened him because he was due neither at his consulting room nor at the hospital anced approvingly out the window at the sun-speckled leaves of the large maple, relishing the luxury of four days of leisure. Briefly, he glanced across the bed where Leah was still deep in sleep and was tempted to awaken her. Her dark hair, grown long again, was strewn across the pillow and her flesh was soft and rosy within the folds of her sheer white nightgown.

It swept her from the burning villages of old Russia to the tenements of New York, from the glittering showrooms of Paris to the settlements of war-torn Israel. It brought her marriage to a man who yearned for her sweet, denied love - and passion for a man who yearned only for danger. It gave her a son born of shame, and a daughter born to destiny

It swept her from the burning villages of old Russia to the tenements of New York, from the glittering showrooms of Paris to the settlements of war-torn Israel. It gave her a son born of shame, and a daughter born to destiny.

There was no shame, Leah knew, attached to the violation of innocent, powerless women and it was not out of shame that Leah maintained her silence but out of the terrible doubt that haunted he.

This started out slowly and with each page the pace and my interest picked up. It was not your typical post world war II drama. The fact that it dealt with Jews in Savannah, Georgia interacting with other Jews as well as the black community and the Irish dock workers gave it a completely different spin. The story has twists and turns that are unexpected. The writing was sweet and tender. While the character development could have been more thorough, it was an excellent read. I think it was a real find...especially at that price and I was sorry to see it end.

Gloria Goldreich’s sweeping saga of a Jewish family begins in Russia, after the Communist Revolution of 1917. Leah’s family, devastated by pogroms, finds hope in the new, communist Russia. However, after a horrific pogrom in which Leah’s young husband is murdered, and she, brutalized, the family decides to abandon Russia. Leah marries David Goldfeder, a friend, whose young wife was also murdered in a pogrom. David and Leah journey to America. Leah’s brother. Moshe, leaves with his wife for British held Palestine.
The story is largely of Leah and David, loosely of their children who grow and marry, and somewhat of extended family members. The novel offers some history of immigrants in New York, and the difficulties immigrants endured, particularly the horrific conditions working in the sweatshops.

Leah's Journey was an interesting twist on an often used plot...immigrant makes good in America. Having read many other books with similar themes, I did find this one had a few more twists in some aspects, but some predictable scenarios in others. I would have wanted to see the relationship with Leah and Aaron more deeply explored from his point of view, especially as Aaron grew from a child to a man. I found the characters to be a little one dimensional. I wasn't disappointed in the book, but I was not intrigued with any of the characters or the plot. I anticipated certain events occurring but not to the characters I thought, so there were twists here and there. In general it was an interesting book. I am not compelled to read the book which follows Leah's children.

I thought this novel was very well-written; however it was so detailed and so slow that I was beginning to lose interest toward the end. I thought it would never end.

This is a must read book of a woman's journey thru happiness and deep sorrow. From dark to light. Beautiful.

This novel not only weaves a story of generations but has some historical value. Well written and touching. Sweet, sensitive and engrossing.
