Thirty-six-year-old Ralph Behr is the third generation of Behrs involved in real estate development in New York. Wealthy and influential, Ralph is finalizing plans for the monumental Behr Center, a complex meant to revive Lower Manhattan's East Side, when his father, Henry, tells him that to settle an old debt he must enter into a marriage of convenience with Gail Benedict, daughter of Henry's old business partner. So begins a tempestuous relationship between two very different people: Gail, a women's activist and advocate for the poor, and Ralph, whom she sees as the evil personification of greed, wealth, and tyranny.

In this captivating and compelling story, author Joseph Amiel sets up an intriguing plot right from the start. The wealthy, larger than life real-estate developer Ralph Behr is all set to build his larger than life real-estate project - three 150 story towers in New York City. There's just one snag - his money and his project are threatened when he is suddenly forced into a marriage with Gail Benedict, a woman whose values and morals are the exact opposite of his. And that's only the beginning! What follows is a riveting unfolding that will keep you turning those pages.

With both of the main characters' generational stories masterfully and organically weaved throughout, Deeds is a significant and extraordinary read, one that hooked me at the start and left me satisfied at the end. Time richly spent on this story.

583 Working on review... will update! 583 I received this book through Goodreads' First Reads Giveaway.

I am rating this book three stars simply because I liked the book but can not say that I REALLY liked the book. The book, while interesting, did drag on a bit and my interest in it waned. At times I had to force myself to go back to reading it and not pick up another novel. I am glad that I did however. For the length of the book, I would have preferred it to be a little less predictable. The characters were well written and I enjoyed them enough to maybe read a sequel. 583 This book was a lovely read. The book covers three generations of two main families as they interact with each other and their own family. Without disclosing any of the plot of the book I feel that the book was a nice insight to the rich world of New York Real Estate. The characters are presented in a human, enticing way that makes the reader like them no matter what there flaws seem to be. I would recommend this book to others who want to read a book with good writing, entertainment and memorable characters. I received a copy of Deeds by Joseph Amiel through Goodreads. However, the opinions in my review are my own and not influenced by the gift of the book. 583
