Summary

From activist to family matriarch, Barbara Lavette takes center stage in the final three volumes of the New York Times–bestselling Immigrants saga.  New York Times–bestselling author Howard Fast’s immensely popular Immigrants saga spanned six novels and more than a century of the Lavette family history. The series was considered one of the crowning achievements of the prolific author, who also penned Spartacus, Freedom Road, and April Morning.  The Legacy: In this New York Times bestseller, Barbara, the daughter of self-made Italian immigrant Dan Lavette, navigates the turmoil of the 1960s, including the Vietnam War, the feminist and civil rights movements, and Israel’s Six Day War with Egypt.   “A wonderful book.” —Los Angeles Times  The Immigrant’s Daughter: At sixty, Barbara is living a quiet life in San Francisco, grieving after the death of a longtime male friend. But when she mounts an unexpectedly competitive congressional campaign, she reconnects with her past as a journalist and human rights activist, and her spirits revive, in this New York Times Bestseller.  An Independent Woman: In this emotional farewell, Barbara, the rock and matriarch of her family, marries a Unitarian priest, and together they travel the world—until she faces the toughest challenge of her life.   “Eventful and well-crafted . . . Loyal fans of Fast’s opus will welcome this bittersweet reunion with a woman they have come to know and admire.” —People

    I let off the gas immediately and slowed down before veering into the lane behind them, even as the operator asked calmly, "Are you able to see the license number? If so, read it to me—as carefully as you can. Are they Kentucky plates?" 
    I was distracted by the men in the payload, who appeared to be lifting something heavy, but quickly focused on the plate. "Yes. Kentucky 527 CXS, Franklin County." I squinted in the fog. The lettering didn't look right. "I—I think it's been altered. I'm following as close as I dare, and it looks like—" 
    "You are behind them?" 
    "Yes. One of them was—" 
    "Sir, be advised that units are on the way and that you are not to pursue. Repeat, do not pursue. Pull over immediately and wait for officers to arrive. What is the make and model of your vehicle?" 
    "I—it's a blue Toyota—a Camry. 2004, I think. I'm—I'm slowing down. But so are they. There's men in the payload. It, it almost …"  
    I was about to say that it looked like they were lifting, well, a trough, to be frank, one of those big aluminum vats used to water horses, when the men heave-hoed the thing twice … and sent its contents hurling toward my windshield. At which point the thick, viscous stuff hit the glass like a hammer—exploding everywhere—and turned the world black. 
    Black and blood red.
