This review is from: Water Will Find its Way (Kindle Edition)
This book is a substantial achievement for a young writer. The scale of the novel is huge covering Armenia, Buenos Aires , France and Seville in narrating the story of three generations of women facing considerable hardship and degradation against a background of political and social upheaval. The narrative maintains its urgency through skilfull interweaving of the separate story lines , vivid creation of localities and realistic social interaction. The use of the first person narrator for all three of the main characters creates difficulties in establishing a distinctive voice for each and there are occasional lapses into stereotype. However, altogether, this is a very good read.
