"A grand, sweeping panorama . . . richly written, finely detailed . . . vivid and memorable."-- Daily News (New York)

Yearning for a better life, Anna Friedman fled Poland for New York at the turn of the century. Finding work as a maid for the Werner family, Anna discovers an elegance beyond her dreams--and the passion of Paul Werner, a man beyond her reach, even when she is in his arms. But it is Joseph Friedman whom she marries. And through an act of illicit passion that will haunt her though all her days, Anna lifts Joseph from poverty to a wealth on which the Friedman dynasty would be based for generations. Sweeping from Jazz Age New York to Nazi Germany to a sun-baked Israeli kibbutz, Evergreen has become a modern American classic--an epic novel that spans three generations of an unforgettable family--and exposes the heart of an extraordinary woman: her marriage, her children, her deceit.
