Online PR News – 30-July-2018 – Bronx, NY – Deborah Eiseman writes a gripping novel about three generations of
women. The novel spans the first half of the twentieth century. In A Mother’s Arms begins with the murder of Laura’s mother and her immigration to America. She marries a fellow immigrant, Solomon, and raises a family. But, Laura is not satisfied with the traditional roles allotted to women and is driven by her ambition to be more than a wife and mother. This creates conflict that threatens her marriage.
Her daughter, Rose, creates a different conflict when against tradition, she becomes involved with a man of a
different religion, breaking her father’s heart. Motherhood is thrust on Rose when she discovers she is pregnant. Cari is a product of an unhappy marriage leaving her vulnerable and feeling unwanted.
Eiseman’s novel covers many well-researched historic events such as: two world wars, the Depression, women’s
right to vote, the Triangle factory fire of 1911. Questions arise about religious bias, discrimination and women’s
choice, themes that are still current today. The reader is engaged in the lives of these women, their triumphs and their trials. In A Mother’s Arms is a novel that will ring true to audience.
