This year’s First Book of 2017 is THE TWO-FAMILY HOUSE by Lynda Cohen Loigman. I have only heard good things about this book. I just recently snagged it on a Kindle deal. I also recommended it to my cousin who just finished it and she liked it. So, I’m confident I’ll finish this one! Goodreads shows a cumulative 3.95 out of 5 stars and Amazon show 4.3 out of 5 stars for the ratings. That’s pretty impressive.
THE TWO-FAMILY HOUSE
By: Lynda Cohen Loigman
Published: March 8, 2016
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
Brooklyn, 1947: in the midst of a blizzard, in a two-family brownstone, two babies are born minutes apart to two women. They are sisters by marriage with an impenetrable bond forged before and during that dramatic night; but as the years progress, small cracks start to appear and their once deep friendship 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.
Why do I think I’ll love it? It’s historical fiction. It’s set during a blizzard which makes January in Iowa a perfect time to read it. It’s about family drama and there is a secret. Also, this is a debut novel from this author which is also something I love. I think it’ll make the perfect choice for my First Book of 2017.
