You Were There Before My Eyes: A Novel

'“A bravura performance by an author with a discerning eye, a faultless ear, and a warm heart. Maria Riva’s winning prose paints a vivid portrait of the golden age of Henry Ford’s automobile empire through the lives of his immigrant workers. Filled with nonstop action . . . Never less than captivating.” —Mary Glickman, National Jewish Book Award Finalist for One More River   “A dazzling historical saga of love, adventure, war, hardship and discovery. Riva transports her readers back to 1913 and the turbulent decades that follow. She skillfully weaves the story of the newcomers’ experiences against a vivid backdrop in which rigid old world traditions clash with ideas about progress, good and bad, in a poignant chronicle that teems with exceptional attention to detail and a fascinating array of characters.” —Allan Levine, award-winning author of Fugitives in the Forest   “This poignant, richly-detailed story will surprise you again and again, moving deftly from themes of immigration, industrialization, and two World Wars to intimate reflections on the meaning of love and the evolution of a marriage. In the process of growing up, these characters stay stubbornly, bravely, true to whom they have always been.” —Sharman Apt Russell, winner of the John Burroughs Medal and Pushcart Prize  '
