"William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski, one the son of a Boston millionaire, the other a penniless Polish immigrant--born on the same day near the turn of the century on opposite sides of the world--are brought together by fate and the quest of a dream. Two men--ambitious, powerful, ruthless--are locked in a relentless struggle to build an empire, fueled by their all-consuming hatred. Over sixty years and three generations, through war, marriage, fortune, and disaster, Kane and Abel battle for the success and triumph that only one man can have."--Page  cover.
