Fortune's Hand 'absolutely' describes the material you are about to read. This book should have taken some time to read, fortunately it grabbed me for 3 1/2 days as I could not put it down. This book will grab you too. 'Great view of love lost, and the fate which backs it.' It'll leave you in a trance after reading it fully. ENJOY

Belva Plain's 'Fortune's Hand' is a compelling story from the moment it is picked up. Endearing and fully fleshed-out characters make the reader care about this family. The book begins in the 1970's and takes the reader through the 1990's. However, the voices that Plain gives her characters would have been better suited for the 40's through the 60's. All the main characters have a stiff, formal way of speaking, which seemed a bit odd and off-putting, especially as Robb, the protagonist, was born and raised on poor southern farm, not an elite private school. This is even more noticeable as the daughter in the story, Julie, was born in 1975. At one point, in about 1994, Julie is talking to her mother about her boyfriend being a 'marvelous' tennis player. 'Marvelous'? What nineteen year-old says that word? I found it a bit distracting. Nevertheless, I would recommend this book. It is worth a read, especially for Plain fans. It has an interesting story, and makes the reader wonder what hand fortune has dealt in their own lives.

This novel had a great beginning but faded out. The story became boring and predictable.

I thought this book was ok, but it was a little bit boring! It was well written and the author is great but I still think that it was a bit lacking or boring.
