Overview

Like their pet cat, Rainy, the marriage of Eva and George Friedlander had nine lives. The seeds of their romance blossomed in the ashes of post-World War II Hungary, were transplanted to Rome where the couple married, and took root in America. In a perfect world, they were an ideal couple. She was a dazzling Ingrid Bergman look-alike and brilliant entrepreneur who disappeared in plain sight during the Holocaust. He was a brilliant scientist who escaped from three forced labor camps more adaptly than Agent 007 and saved numerous Jewish lives while working with both the Hungarian and the French underground. But how many wives can say they really know the man they married? The story follows the Friedlanders through their individual wartime experiences, George's 45-year love affair with another woman and their tumultuous years of living separate lives under one roof. Then a traumatic event opened their hearts. But after all the acrimony, could the couple come full circle at the end of his life? Eva's memoir of danger, romance and betrayal reads more like a novel than a biography and is a testament to her ability to emerge from George's shadow. It is a must read for those facing adversity and infidelity.

We are losing the greatest generation as time passes further from the World War II era. Fortunately many of those that lived during that time are capturing their stories so that their heart ache and sacrifice won't be lost to the sands of time. In Nine Lives of a Marriage- a Curious Journey by Eva Friedlander with Mickey Goodman, Eva Friedlander candidly shares the ups and downs of her life. An Ingrid Bergman look alike, this native Hungarian found her love in George Friedlander built a life with this good looking charming man. Her life is filled with highs and lows, but as a devoted wife, mother, and strong women she overcomes whatever is thrown her way. It is a heart wrenching tale about life's imperfect outcomes and the uncertainty of the future. Nine Lives of a Marriage- a Curious Journey by Eva Friedlander with Mickey Goodman is a honest peek into one woman's journey in pursuit of the American dream.
