I found this book to be quite enjoyable and also quite different from most books I've read. Sometimes it's hard to describe a book, so I'm going to resort to part of what is written on the back cover:
"In the Image follows a young New Jersey woman, Leora, through the death of a friend in high school and on to college, career, and falling in love. Simultaneously, it traces the story of Bill Landsmann, her lost friend's grandfather, back through several generations of experience in Amsterdam, Austria, and New York's Lower East Side."
This is my 12th book for the New Author Challenge 2010. I rate this book 4 out of 5.
