The Golden Cup

The Golden CupJust arrived from USA through BM.

Even if I haven't read the previous books of Werner Family saga, I was able to follow the plot.

A pleasant reading for a nice Sunday. A generational family saga, set at the turn of the last century. One of my favourite time periods to read about with the advent of electricity, telephones and automobiles. The family does not see eye to eye on politics and social issues, with one branch being very active in various movements (suffrage, tenement reform) while the rest of the family grows their wealth in property acquisition and supplying the war effort. In the end, blood is thicker than water. I loved EVERGREEN, the first in this series. But THE GOLDEN CUP was only a threestar read for me. While the book is full of family drama, which I love, there wasn't enough historical context to make this a fulfilling book for me. Belva Plain didn't even include dates, so as you were reading you had to guess what year it was by analyzing things like technology (are there cars yet, electricity, phones, etc.) and talk of wars (Boer War, Civil War, WWI). I also felt like there had to be a larger overarching theme to the book besides the Werner family saga. Overall, this was easy enough to read but disappointing. I'm not going to continue reading this series.

P.S. Why is called the golden cup? Where is this golden cup? It can't be a eucharistic reference since the Werners are Jewish. Does it have some Jewish symbolism that I don't know about? Not my cup of tea...too long, too wordy... DNF'd this one. I've got the other books in the "Evergreen" series and was disappointed in this one. In the original book, there was no mention of Henrietta that I remember, or if there was, it was only a brief mention. I'm not sure why Plain focused on her character because Henrietta was on the bland side. I was also not all that into Dan's character. Paul Werner is in it, but is pretty much sidelined, at least he was in the section I got up to before stopping. The plotting seemed rushed as well, so I'm hoping the other three remaining books aren't like this one. Filled with secrets, sex, and scandal, the Werner family saga continues in this second volume of the fivepart series by Belva Plain that began with "Evergreen."

Taking place from 1891 through the end of World War I, a time when horsedrawn carriages were being replaced with automobiles and young, brash businessmen could make a fortune seemingly overnight, the book focuses on the next generation of the Werner family: Florence and Walter Werner and their son, Paul, and Hennie and Dan Roth and their son, Freddy, and adopted daughter, Leah. While Florence and Walter live a life of prosperity and wealth, Hennie and Dan shun such luxuries, working instead to help the poor and downtrodden.

In many ways, the soap operatype story is predictable and even at times plodding (the descriptions are vivid but can be overly long), but it's basically a fun and engrossing read. If you enjoy family sagas told over several generations, this is a solid choice. While "The Golden Cup" stands alone quite well, it's always best to begin at the beginning with a series—so start with "Evergreen."
This was an interesting follow up to "Evergreen", the first in the series. In "Evergreen" it was about the life of a Polish immigrant. This book looks at her love interest, a man from a wealthy family and his kin. Though you can read them separately, I'm glad I followed on the tail of reading the first book so I still remembered all the names of the characters. Meanwhile, new characters were introduced to I guess it's on to book 3, "Tapestry."
