Truly an extraordinary tale of misfortune, evil, and overcoming obstacles in order to be reunited with those you have loved and lost. Can happiness be found again? Absolutely, as we learn here, as the women find renewed happiness after opening themselves up to the possibility. An enlightening and dynamic plot that weaves its way into our hearts and teaches us that all is not lost as long as we have faith in life and those we love.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. A good story makes us empathize with the characters as well as fear those that wish to do harm to others. And this is exactly what I felt, straight through to the very last page of the book. I highly recommend it to all those who enjoy reading a saga that spans several generations, but also for those who just like a really touching and realistic story with characters who you can relate to.” ~International Review of Books
