The title of Rachel Beanland’s new novel, Florence Adler Swims Forever, leads readers to believe they are cracking the spine of a light beach read about a bygone era. The first few chapters reward these expectations, as the reader is immersed in the world of 1930s Atlantic City. Yet the book soon takes a turn, tackling emotional themes and a storyline that becomes increasingly complex by the page. The novel centers on a Jewish family no longer struggling to assimilate, but rather dealing with the challenges of economic survival, antisemitism, and intermarriage.
