In this sequel to "The Immigrants," Barbara Levette is troubled by the conflicts of her dual inheritance and scornful of her mother''s social world. Barbara sets out to build her own life in her own way--a way that leads her to a Europe on the brink of Nazi terror.
From the Publisher:

Born to enormous wealth and social standing, Barbara Lavette leaves her sumptuous home on San Francisco's Nob Hill to lead a life of adventure that takes her from the depression to the darkest days of World War II.

Troubled by the conflicts of her dual inheritance and scornful of her mother's social world, Barbara sets out to build her own life in her own way, leading her to a Europe on the brink of Nazi terror. Along the way she falls deeply in love with a man of ardent passions and loyalties who risks his life to preserve the memories of the Jews who died in the concentration camps. How they survive a heartless tragedy set on destroying them is the surprise conclusion of this relentless, page turning novel.

Author Bio
Howard Fast
Howard Fast, who once commented, "I have more unwritten stories in me than I can conceivably write in a lifetime," lived to be 88 and wrote more than 80 books, including such titles as CITIZEN TOM PAINE (1943), the best-selling FREEDOM ROAD (1944), and SPARTACUS (1953). Fast joined the Communist Party in 1943--a reaction to his impoverished New York City childhood; he was blacklisted and ended up serving time in a federal prison in 1950, convicted of contempt of Congress when he refused to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. (Disillusioned by Stalin, he left the party in 1956.) In addition to his popular novels, Fast also wrote mysteries (under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham) about a Japanese Zen Buddhist who is also a detective in Beverly Hills. His last novel, GREENWICH (set in the Connecticut town where Fast himself lived) was published in 2000.
