Hidden

by Victoria Lustbader

The battlefield traumas of the Great War cement an improbable friendship between Jed Gates, scion of the wealthy Gates family, and David Warshinsky, first-generation American from New York's poverty-ridden lower East Side. David sacrifices his family and his Jewish heritage to his untamable ambition. Jed sacrifices his private desires to assume the burdens of familial expectations. Davids sister Sarah suffers the torments of a tenement sweatshop, while Jed's sister Lucy becomes a nurse in Margaret Sanger's revolutionary birth control clinic. Both find love in unexpected places. David's mother Anna loses her struggle to preserve her shattered family. And wealth cannot protect Jed's aunt Zoe from the violent abuses of her alcoholic husband, or his artist father Philip from the pain of his wife's rejection. A novel that is both panoramic and intimate, Hidden teems with complex characters readers will embrace. Concealing their passions and innermost thoughts even from those they love most dearly, the Warshinskys and Gateses love, lust, seize power, and strive during a decade of turmoil at home and abroad. Hidden is the powerful debut of a talented new writer.

Stone Creek

by Victoria Lustbader

In the small town of Stone Creek, a random encounter offers two lonely people a chance at happiness. Danny, a young widower, still grieves for his late wife, but for the sake of his five-year-old son, Caleb, he knows he must move on. Alone in her summer house, Lily has left her workaholic husband, Paul, to his long hours and late nights back in the city. In Stone Creek, she can yearn in solitude for the treasure she's been denied: a child. What occurs when Lily and Danny meet is immediate and undeniable-despite Lily being ten years older and married. But ultimately it is little Caleb's sadness and need that will tip the scales, upsetting a precarious balance between joy and despair, between what cannot happen . . . and what must. An unforgettable novel of tremendous emotional heft, Stone Creek brilliantly illuminates how the powers of love and loss transform the human heart.
