Gwyneth Paltrow

On her mother's side, Gwyneth is fascinated by the story of her great, great grandmother Rosamond, orphaned at a young age but possessing a spirit of adventure which led her and her sister to board a boat for the USA.

Meanwhile, Gwyneth's beloved grandfather Arnold had a tough upbringing and didn't have many good words for his own mother Ida. She suspects there may be more to this story than meets the eye, and indeed uncovers how a tragic string of events undermined the promising career of a bright young woman, leading to disappointment and eventually depression.

Finally, Gwyneth discovers that the family myth that she is descended from a long line of rabbis is not only true, but she encounters ancestors with deep links to the Jewish faith - an experience which has a deep and lasting impression on her.
