The Two-Family House

517qnxKdkmL._SY346_Despite a slow start, The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman is a delightful novel with interesting characters and an absorbing story. Rose and Helen are best friends, married to brothers, who share a brownstone in New York City. Rose lives in the downstairs apartment with her three girls and Helen lives upstairs with her three boys. The families are in and out of each other’s homes daily and the brothers work together in a box manufacturing business that had been passed down to them by their father. Imagine how excited the sisters-in-law are to discover, later in life, that they are both pregnant. Fast forward 9 months to a blizzard, when both husbands are out of town on business. What happens that night changes the course of both family’s history and weaves together a page-turning tale. I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it. While you suspect the “mystery” early on, it isn’t confirmed until close to the end, which makes it that much more fun.
