The Running Years

(1981)
A novel by

 
 
Claire Rayner's epic saga of two jewish families:
She was born in 1893, in the slums of London. The daughter of immigrants, the descendant of exiles, she was part of a people doomed to wander, forever strangers in the lamds they had chosen as home. But Hannah Lazar was different. She was born and bred a Londoner, and London was where she belonged. As strong-willed as she was beautiful, Hannah would uproot herself from the gloomy poverty of her parents' lives to enter a world of elegence and wealth. As her ancestors had journeyed from land to land with only their own resilience and determination to help them survive, Hannah would move from the slums of the East End to the salons of Mayfair; to a life that she could call her own.

THE RUNNING YEARS is Claire Rayner's most powerful and spectacular novel to date, a breathtaking testament to the human spirit - a richly dramatic and intricately woven story that traces the fortunes of two Jewish families from the razing of Jerusalem in 70 AD through two-thousand years of violence, love and change.
