Publisher's Summary

In a novel spanning two world wars, Cynthia Freeman sweeps us into the lives and loves of a powerful European family and the son whose break from tradition has far-reaching consequences.
Nathan Hack expects his four sons to marry well and keep up the tradition of becoming barristers in the prestigious house of Hack. But Rubin, the youngest, feels that his legacy is a stranglehold. He's betrothed to a woman from a fine family when he falls in love with a beautiful, enigmatic stranger in Paris. Her name is Magda, and she will change Rubin’s life completely. Decades later, history will repeat itself when a woman is caught between two men during Hitler's regime. Played out on the world stage against the backdrop of World Wars I and II, and peopled by an unforgettable cast of characters, The Days of Winter is a spellbinding story of pride and ambition, survival and redemption.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Days of Winter?

KIDNEY TRANSPLANT IN 1938! AND THE HUSBAND WAS THE PERFECT DONOR. LOTS OF RIDICULOUS STUFF THAT AN EDITOR SHOULD HAVE QUESTIONED. BRIGHTON BEACH IN ENGLAND! I HAVE NEVER HEARD BRIGHTON REFERRED TO AS THAT. BRIGHTON BEACH N.Y. JUST BRIGHTON IN ENGLAND.

SO MUCH RIDICULOUS SITUATIONS. MAGDA AND JEANETTE IRRITATING WOMEN.
FOOLISH HEROINES - FOOLISH BOOK. FIRST NEGATIVE REVIEW IN PURCHASE OF ABOUT 1000 AUDIBLE BOOKS.

culturally inaccurate

Jewish wedding ceremony doesn't contain "death do us part ". Unbelievable, cliche, with bad narration . Not worth a credit.
