Come What May,  Sherryl Caulfield Review from jeannie zelos book reviews I loved the first book, something so different from what's often offered in the romance Genre. A deep, epic family story spanning generations. This follows the family further, Rebecca is grown up now and the novel focuses on family life and especially that of her second daughter Gene. Book one had me in tears, so deep was the sorrow at times, and this one also has that depth of sadness not often found. Its got happiness too, and incredibly evocative scenes surrounding the plots. I felt I was there with them, smelling the sharp antiseptic smell of the hospital, sitting at the table enjoying a family meal and conversation, or out in the snow, blinded by the reflections from every tree and bush, nostrils full of the fragrant scent of pine from the forest and hearing the cry of the dogs... We first meet Gene when she’s a young child, the then she’s growing up and the family are learning to cope with loss. That's so sad, I really felt for them all, for Rebecca withdrawing from life, for Jonathon forced to take over and for Gene who was so lost. As she grows so many things happen, there’s tears, happiness and more tears. Poor Morton, her brother, he had been in such a traumatic position when he was young and never really recovered, just learned to live with it. After Gene finishes school she helps Jonathon as part of a medical expedition and enters a new section of her life. She’s still carrying the past inside her though, and it sparks out years later when she just can’t keep it in any more, affecting her thoughts and feelings about everyone. That’s a really sad time and I was so distraught – for her, for her family and for Sonny and their family. Her actions there will have a similar effect to her children I expect, as did the things that happened to her in childhood. What happens to us in life shapes us, some people grow stronger, some just learn to live with it and cope and some go under, if only for a while. None of us are in isolations and through the first two books we’ve seen just how things that happen flow like ripples through a family, influencing and moving them around. Stars: Five. Its another very emotive book, full of wonderful descriptions of the places they are, the people within and the events. I was so saddened sometimes – but I love that in a book, one that makes events and people seem so real that I'm upset for them. Another cracking read, to savour and cherish.
