Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She'll stand up for her family, no matter the cost

Former socialite Barbara Lavette is unconcerned about the gossip that surrounds her new marriage. However, her husband Bernie, a poor mechanic whom she met in the midst of World War II, is willing to do anything to prove his worth to her as well as the society that shuns him.

Barbara will support her husband in any way she can, but when she becomes the victim of an attack by the Congressional Committee on Un-American Activities, she is forced to stand trial. Caught in a Communist witch hunt, Barbara must do whatever it takes to defend her values, clear her name, and find a way to reunite her family.

The third book in Howard Fast's epic family saga, The Establishment follows the Lavette family as they attempt to persevere in a nation consumed with fear during the tumultuous period following World War II.

Praise for The Immigrants series:

Relentless pace of events...real experience leaping full-bodied from Fast's imagination

-New York Times

There hasn't been a novel in years that can do a job on readers' emotions that the last fifty pages of The Immigrants does.

-Los Angeles Times

Emotional, exciting, and entertaining.

-Philadelphia Inquirer

Synopsis:

It's 1948 and World War II is over, but the world is not at peace. In San Francisco, Barbara Lavette, author and foreign correspondent, is trying to make a new life with her young son and husband Bernie Cohen, the solider she met in France during the war. Her family is just settling in when Bernie receives an urgent and mysterious phone call that takes him away on a secret mission and leads Barbara to Congressional confrontations, jail, and eventually to unforgettable tragedy.

Praise for Howard Fast:

"Howard Fast ties in the lives and fortunes of the children of the children of the immigrants to fabulous history... Their liaisons, struggles, frustrations and dreams...." "-Los Angeles Times"

"Howard Fast is fiercely American, he is one of ours, one of our very best!" -"Los Angeles"" Times"
