Books three and four of a sweeping ten-volume series that follows a single family through the twentieth-century.

Molly Aldrich competes in the Berlin Olympics and visits her cousin Jack, who married a Jewish woman and settled in Berlin. Major events of the decade, including the rise of Hitler and the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, play a part in the narrative.
