Summary
She'll stand up for her family, no matter the cost Former socialite Barbara Lavette is unconcerned about the gossip that surrounds her new marriage. However, her husband Bernie, a poor mechanic whom she met in the midst of World War II, is willing to do anything to prove his worth to her as well as the society that shuns him. Barbara will support her husband in any way she can, but when she becomes the victim of an attack by the Congressional Committee on Un-American Activities, she is forced to stand trial. Caught in a Communist witch hunt, Barbara must do whatever it takes to defend her values, clear her name, and find a way to reunite her family. The third book in Howard Fast's epic family saga, The Establishment follows the Lavette family as they attempt to persevere in a nation consumed with fear during the tumultuous period following World War II
