Based on other books by this author I knew this book would be entertaining. It was fun to read how the Adlers, characters familiar in subsequent tales, met and to watch their relationhip develop.
"Welcome to Ahwahnee" contains fascinating insights into the perspectives of a variety of characters living in Europe and America during some of history's most challenging events as well as how common people carried on their daily lives. How the choices they made affected their lives and the lives of future generations is at times touching and at other times quite funny.
This tale stirs an unexpectedly wide variety of emotions as the characters move through portals to other universes searching for their friends and family and ultimately find answers they didn't know they sought.
Though there were parts that I found disturbing, overall I found it a fast-paced story with twisting plot lines and entertaining characters.
