Review Excerpts


Historical Novel Society Review - May 1, 2016
“This absolutely riveting book reads like a suspense novel; although many clues are peppered throughout; the reader, like the families, is not invited to share in the shocking secret that binds the two women. The underlying complexities of friendship, the intricacies of marriage and the disintegration of family are explored in this gem of a family saga. The characters are fully drawn, and the writing is superb. This is a book that is sure to become a popular choice for book clubs. “

Bookreporter – March 11, 2016
"...thoughtful and provocative... Written as a beach read, this very literary tale actually gives readers so much more than it may seem at first."

Associated Press - March 8, 2016
“…It's hard to believe "The Two-Family House" is Lynda Cohen Loigman's debut novel. A richly textured, complex, yet entirely believable story, it draws us inexorably into the lives of two brothers and their families in 1950s Brooklyn, New York… …’The Two-Family House’ is engrossing from beginning to end.”

Romantic Times - March 1, 2016 - Top Pick
“Peeling back the layers that surround an irreversible, life-altering secret, this novel weaves a complex and heartbreaking story about lies and love, forgiveness and family. Written from alternating perspectives of the different family members over more than two decades, the deeply developed voices will bring tears and awe, settling snugly into the heart and mind. It’s a reminder that love is always forgiving.”

Booklist - March 1, 2016
This is a rich emotional journey through the heartache of regret and longing. In her first novel, Loigman uses complex characters to deconstruct the anatomy of family relationships and expose deep-rooted emotions, delivering a moving story of love, loss, and sacrifice.
