Even as a child in 1910, Sara Glikman knows her gift: she is a seeker of soulmates and a maker of matches. But among the pushcart-crowded streets of New York’s Lower East Side, Sara’s vocation is dominated by devout older men. After working in secret for more than a decade, Sara must fight to gain recognition for her talents.
Two generations later, Sara has passed away and has bequeathed her journals to her granddaughter, Abby, a successful Manhattan divorce attorney. But among the faded volumes, Abby finds more questions than answers.
From Lynda Cohen Loigman, author of the bestselling historical novels The Two-Family House and The Wartime Sisters comes this heartfelt and magical story of two extraordinary women from two different eras who defy societal expectations.
