Brooklyn, 1947: In the midst of a blizzard, in a two-family
brownstone, two babies are born, minutes apart. The mothers
are sisters by marriage: dutiful, quiet Rose, who wants
nothing more than to please her difficult husband; and warm,
generous Helen, the exhausted mother of four rambunctious
boys who seem to need her less and less each day. Raising
their families side by side, supporting one another, Rose
and Helen share an impenetrable bond forged before and
during that dramatic winter night.
When the storm passes, life seems to return to normal; but
as the years progress, small cracks start to appear and the
once deep friendship between the two women begins to
unravel. No one knows why, and no one can stop it. One
misguided choice; one moment of tragedy. Heartbreak wars
with happiness and almost, but not quite, wins. Moving and
evocative, Lynda Cohen Loigman's debut novel The
Two-Family House is a heart-wrenching, gripping
multigenerational story, woven around the deepest of secrets.
