Publisher's Summary

In this triumphant conclusion to the Lavette saga, Howard Fast brings the story up to the present, to the fourth generation. As Dan Lavette dominated The Immigrants, so his eldest child, Barbara, is the focus of this wide-ranging and passionate novel.After a life filled with danger, love and death, Barbara, now in her sixties, is living a simple life in San Francisco. And then, almost on a whim, she runs for Congress and sets in motion a series of adventures that brings her back to the excitement of the times, to a renewal of romantic love, to mortal danger as a reporter in Central America, to loss and tragedy, and in the end, to an exultant embracing of life.

Great journey, but....

I enjoyed this series. The journey was exciting, interesting, and heart warming at times. The narration was good overall. Two caveats, first after the 3rd novel it became the story of Barbara Lavette. I don't feel the author took advantage of the other characters stories. It was all about Barbara. Second the journey is the story, the final destination falls flat and makes me wonder; "was the journey worth it". If you are into multi generational sagas I would say give the series a try, but don't expect " Ken Follet"...
