Description
With one act of kindness, the fate of a New York City family is forever altered- not, perhaps, for the better The Strands are a happy family, save for the occasional financial struggle. Allen, the father, has a decent job as a schoolteacher, a lovely wife, and smart, ambitious, and compassionate children. When Allen's daughter witnesses a mugging, she takes the victim back to the Strand home for help and a warm meal. The Strands have no clue that the man they are helping is Russell Hazen, a powerful and wealthy Wall Street lawyer. In his gratitude, Hazen offers gifts, vacations, networking opportunities-even plastic surgery. But with each reward comes baggage, and soon the Strands begin to lose sight of what matters most in life. Bread Upon the Waters is a masterful story about the way lives interconnect, and how every good deed, no matter how selfless, comes with a price. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
