An Independent Woman: A Novel

418 pages6 hours


From the New York Times–bestselling author of The Immigrant: The conclusion to the Lavette family saga is “addictive as candy” and “genuinely touching” (Publishers Weekly).
 In the sixth and final installment of the Immigrants saga, Fast revisits the charismatic Barbara Lavette. In this emotional farewell, Barbara, the rock and matriarch of her family, marries a Unitarian priest, and together they travel the world. Though Fast wrote over eighty books, including Spartacus, April Morning, and Freedom Road, his Immigrants saga remains some of his most personal and moving work.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.
