A terrific story for those who are very picky
Sons and lovers covers an era in the British Isles that precedes WWI. Our heroine shows us the sacrifices that women faced when they had no future but to get married and produce children. She has two sons who become her entire world and focus. Both boys turn out differently and somewhat the same as you would expect from a strong mother and weak father. There is an awakening in the siblings sexually that uses women for pleasure but can produce no intimate relationship. The story takes us through the trials and tribulations of the sons as they go to work, live their adult lives, and ultimately survive or die in a world that they are ill-prepared to adequately deal with in any meaningful way. There is no contriteness or predictability. Each scene brings something new to the plot. A very insightful look at a bygone era. Brilliantly entertaining. Adult content.Was this review helpful?
