Her debut novel was reviewed by The Midwest Book Review in April 2012. Here’s what they said: “The Last Victim” is a choice read… very much recommended.”
The Last Victim is a riveting saga about the consequences of obsession, lies and deception.
From the first moment Sophie Rothman lies to her husband about the child she is carrying, the lives of everyone in her family are changed forever.
Driven by a twisted obsession to accumulate money for its own sake, Sophie forces her family to live beneath their means and drives her husband, Harry, away. During his absence, Sophie’s loneliness leads her into an illicit affair and an unwanted pregnancy. When her lover leaves, Sophie begs Harry to return and then deceives him into believing the child she’s carrying is his. If Sophie keeps her secret, no one will be hurt. Or will they? It’s a question Sophie will have to answer one day.
Jeanie, the product of Sophie’s affair, grows into a beautiful, strong-willed woman who defies her mother at every turn and becomes an archaeologist. Destiny takes Jeanie to Masada—one of the greatest archaeological digs of all time—where she falls in love with David. When Jeanie announces her plans to marry, Sophie is forced to reveal her longguarded secret and forbid the marriage.
The events set in motion by Sophie’s revelation catapult Jeanie to a near breakdown and tear the Rothman family apart. On Jeanie’s final journey, she draws on all her courage to confront her mother and break the bonds that bind.
The Last Victim is a story spanning three decades—from the streets of Brooklyn, New York in the 1940s to the streets of Jerusalem and the harsh desert sands of Masada in the 1960s. Here is a multi-layered portrait of Jewish-American life during a turbulent time in America, and the deep connection to Israel’s fight to survive in the Middle East.
