I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a family saga, 3 generations, with recollections of the past and strong hints that there is a future for the younger members of the family. I hope so, hope that there is a sequel. Besides the family drama, the story is set in an era of change both politically and economically, and I love seeing how those changes alter the characters. Good reading!
And they say don't judge a book by its cover.. the illustration on the front of the book is a hint to how creative the writing and plot of the story is. No creativity or author's craft displayed in this book at all. Sadly, I was very disappointed and not worth a penny.
