It’s 1919 and Henrich Danek Stendal is leaving his native Hungary behind. Having survived World War I, he’s heading for America and New York City with his family in tow. His memories of the Great War resound in his mind, as does another deeply buried memory. There is no turning back.
It is also 1979 in New York City and Daniel Henry Stone is a wild, young man who never backs away from a fight. He’s worked as a cook and a bartender most of his young life, but now he’s landed a gem of a job as a renting agent in a large, thirty-two building complex. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This building complex just might go co-op, and he could cash in on the deal of a lifetime.
Their lives, although sixty years apart, will intersect in both action and thought, through the women they meet, the fortunes they seek, and the battles they wage. The mystery of their connection is both endearing and timeless.
