(As seen on Goodreads)
The Motherland is a searing saga of two American families, with unforgettable, unique characters; Evelyn, the audacious, sassy, beautiful daughter of warm-hearted, simple, funny, loving people,who doesn't want to have their kind of life. She runs away from her native Pittsburgh and her boring first husband, and with young daughter in tow, lands Sonny Sterne, a brilliant, sensitive investment banker, who, with his ambitious brother turns Wall Street on its ear. An amazing portrait of ambition and passion, by turns comic and touching. And in Evelyn an unlikely heroine, darkly self-involved,but strangely irresistible.
