Synopsis: A glorious saga that spans twentieth-century America, from one of today's most beloved, bestselling authors. The Road Taken is the story of our century, as told through four generations of an unforgettable family. It is also the story of choices and chances and fate, which transform people's lives forever. Rose Smith is born in the very beginning of 1900, the year that ushered in the most rapidly changing century in history, with its remarkable advances in medicine, technology, politics, and American society. At the age of ten, Rose loses her mother. Raised by her somewhat distant father, her older sister, and her new stepmother, Rose learns to become independent and adaptable. As she grows up and begins a family of her own, she and her three very distinct but equally strong-willed daughters, and their men, are a part of the country's growth too-an America inescapably altered by the onset of devastating wars, the advent of new medicines, and the emerging power and autonomy of women. The family's lives are composed of a mosaic of tragedy and joy, love, hate, rivalry, struggle and redemption, a poignant re-creation of the human experience. The Road Taken is a chronicle of a woman and a family and a century like no other, written by Rona Jaffe, whose novels have sold more than thirty-two million copies worldwide. Rona Jaffe is the internationally bestselling author of novels such as The Best of Everything, Class Reunion, Mr. Right is Dead, Family Secrets, The Last Chance, Mazes and Monsters, The Cousins, and Five Women. She has been writing for more than five decades and is considered one of the foremost chroniclers of relationships in the modern age. She is the founder of the Rona Jaffe Foundation, which offers national literary awards to women writers. Ms. Jaffe resides in New York City and the Hamptons.
