Belva Plain wrote big, satisfying family sagas
Best-selling author Belva Plain died last week at age 95. The New York Times carried her obituary. I read her first novel, Evergreen, published in 1978, when I was in college. I still have the book on my bookshelf at home. The article summarizes the book: “it follows Anna, a feisty, redheaded Jewish immigrant girl from Poland in turn-of-the-century New York, whose family story continues through several decades and three more books.” Golden Cup, Tapestry, and Harvest tell the rest of the story.
