How Sweet It Is! by Thane Rosenbaum
Set in Miami Beach, Florida in 1972, the novel follows the Posner family, comprised of Holocaust survivors Sophie and Jacob, and their son Adam. The Posners do everything they can to avoid one another in a city with an infinite supply of colorful diversions. In 1972, Miami beach was the site of both the Republican and Democratic political conventions and saw the rise of the counterculture, the Cold War, and the desegregation of the old South.
