Montreal 1951. Rebecca Wiseman lives with her family in a working-class Jewish neighborhood. She briefly meets a handsome young man but has little hope of seeing him again.When Sol Gottesman takes her in a chauffeured Rolls-Royce to the most expensive restaurant in the city, she enters a world of upper-class privilege. But she soon learns that despite his outward charm, Sol lacks self-confidence. He reveals the simmering conflicts in his family. Rebecca loves him, but helping Sol stand up to his family, puts her squarely in the midst of it all. When class, family conflict and sexual secrets test their love, Rebecca struggles to control events. And then, a late-night telephone call changes her life forever.




Born in Arlington, MA, I graduated from Bates College in Maine where I majored in English Literature. During my junior year, I studied at Oxford, England and travelled throughout Europe. I began writing fiction during a four-year enlistment in the US Air Force. After working in the IT departments of several Boston financial services companies, I retired in 2012. Upon retiring, I told myself that it was time to get serious about writing. I published my first novel in 2015. I live with my wife, Susan, north of Boston. We have four grandchildren in Rhode Island and New Hampshire. I am currently working on a fictional memoir.
