Amy Unbound is the sec­ond of the five books that traces the Feld­man fam­i­ly saga from Depres­sion days to 2020.

Amy Feld­man is 40 years old in 2008, a suc­cess­ful attor­ney, and a Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty activist who has been named the St. Louis Jew­ish Woman of Achieve­ment. She had grown dis­il­lu­sioned with her mar­riage to Josh who has become dis­tant, dis­in­ter­est­ed in sex, and con­sumed by his own busi­ness inter­ests. Her fail­ing mar­riage com­bined with her excite­ment over the elec­tion of Barack Oba­ma encour­ages her to seek ful­fill­ment in the pur­suit of social jus­tice. Amy achieves many of her goals work­ing as a lob­by­ist for the Chica­go Alliance for Social Jus­tice. She also falls in love with her boss in Chica­go. Her hus­band is stunned by these devel­op­ments and is des­per­ate to save the mar­riage.

Is it too late? Has Amy’s taste of suc­cess on the nation­al stage and her love affair with her boss doomed the marriage?
