Review: The Two-Family House

The Two-Family House The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Two very different families share a house. In the upper floor, Helen, Abe and their four sons.
Downstairs, Abe's brother Mort, his wife Rose and their three daughters.

When two babies are born just minutes apart on a stormy night, the misguided decision that the mothers make will alter all of their lives forever.
Following the birth of the babies, the relationship between Rose and Helen starts to change. Mainly, it's Rose that has a complete change of character, and pushes everyone from her.
I can assume it was due to the pact she made with Helen, but I would have liked to see more depth in her, not just anger.

While the book is very well written, I felt that the outcome was too easy after all that the characters had been through.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
