It is Boston, 1969, and the Rabinowitz family is at the peak of its wealth and happiness after celebrating Tateh and Mameh's fiftieth wedding anniversary. But following the party a sudden death sends shock waves through the family. The immigrant clan, which fought its way from poverty to prominence in the novel THOSE WHO WALK IN DARKNESS, must navigate a devastating series of reversals in this stirring sequel. Isidore, head of the family shoe empire, faces a challenge greater than business as his family falls apart. Jake, a famous artist overwhelmed by family secrets, seeks answers by traveling to his parents' birthplace in Bessarabia, not suspecting that what he will find there will only deepen his turmoil. And Hanna, a brilliant attorney, enters into a relationship that she knows from the start will end in heartbreak.THE ABYSS BETWEEN DAWN AND NIGHT also introduces a new generation: Jake's son David, a doctor caught in the mayhem of a civil war; and Isidore's sons Doug and Justin, who are trying to find their paths in the turbulent sixties. You'll also meet a dangerous woman leading a ragged rebel army, a bigoted industrialist and his daughter, a bumbling Communist guide and translator, and a gallery of other original characters. Journey along as the Rabinowitzes-despite kidnappings, betrayals, midnight escapes, and secret liaisons-follow an uncertain path to inspiration, redemption, and ultimately a new start.
