After relocating several times for various reasons, Sonia Greenberg blossomed into adulthood into an attractive and bright young woman who had no trouble attracting men. Independent, however, she developed a neediness, a hangover from the fact that the two men closest to her had left her. She thus became manipulative, self-reliant, and a prisoner of her own intelligence. She became an opera devotee, promoter of health foods, and fostered a holistic interest in seeking work in the medical field. Gregory Penn, Sonia's soon-to-be husband, arrived in the United States (from Lithuania) at the same time as the Greenbergs had arrived in the country. Gregory changed his name to Harry, and soon after Harry and Sonia were married. Sadly their marriage ended in divorce. Because of this separation, their son Arthur Penn was rarely able to establish long friendships. He felt that he learned more on the streets than in school. In addition to coping with losing their parents, Arthur and his brother Irving had to cope with the upcoming war.
