    An absorbing read from beginning to end

    " Two-Family House" by Lynda Cohen Loigman is a great read which catches the reader's attention from beginning to end. Beginning in 1947 and ending in 1970, this novel tells the story of two brothers and their families. A decision made by the brothers' wives, kept secret through the decades, deeply affects their lives, and the reader can't help but become immersed in the family's story. Part family saga, part mystery, this novel leaves a lasting impression with the reader. Personally I found it hard to put the book down!

    A Fabulous Debut!

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I read this book in one day and absolutely loved it! The story is both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time! The story is told by many of the different family members and you just can't help but feel for all of them! I highly recommend this fabulous book!

    Not my type of book!

    The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman is the story about two brothers who share a family home. Mort, Rose, and their daughters live in the downstairs apartment. Abe, Helen, and their four boys live upstairs. The two brothers work together at Box Brothers. They make cardboard boxes for businesses. Helen and Rose end up pregnant at the same time with their babies due in January. Their children are born during a winter storm in Brooklyn in 1947. One woman wants a boy and the other a girl. They have the opportunity to get what they want and take it. See how this one choice (act) changes their lives and their families. The Two-Family House is a slow starter. It is hard to get to keep reading this book, but I persisted. The novel was okay (satisfactory), but not wonderful. The story just plods along telling you what happens because of the decision these two women made (and one regrets it). The characters were flat. The Two-Family House is told in a first person point-of-view by various characters (which leads to confusion as it switches). The novel needed a little something (like maybe making it more of a secret) to make it more appealing. It needed more depth and interest. It reads more like a first or second draft, than a finished novel. I give The Two-Family House 2 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of The Two-Family House from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Great Novel

    I knew from the beginning what the big secret was. Even though you know what it is, it's very interesting to read about the character's reaction to life's events and read as some characters improve with age and become better people and others devolve and become much worse. Really good story and character development.
