It is not an easy read, it is web of stories intricately tied together so perfectly and as such it is a read you have to concentrate completely on but it is so worth every second of complete concentration. Seeing how the stories of individual characters pan out and combine was a pleasure, discovering the sins that were twisted in the web was heart breaking in places. So many small actions that impacted so dramatically on the lives of those involved. Perfection!
Cromwell pours much of what makes us human into this novel and, at times, touches a very raw nerve. We think we know the characters well until they shock and surprise us with their actions.
A real page turner for those interested in the (sometimes hidden) History of Britain, and of the dynamics of families.
A lovely and innocent young woman, who carries a secret that even she is unaware of, is brutally murdered and becomes the source of an outpouring of love and pain for so many of the lives she’s touched. The ordeal of two families is inextricably woven together when the girl’s DNA sample reveals an unbelievable detail from twenty-four years prior. From there, we begin a journey dating back from the D-day invasion of Normandy and the Nazi war camps to modern-day England.
Our characters are richly developed: a homely woman whose best companion is an equally homely dog; grandparents who have known lost love, longing, and the atrocities of war; a woman who selfishly only sees her own needs at the peril of others and ultimately herself; and a young, lost college student who experiences his own tragedy.
Cromwell carries us deep into the cesspool of sin and the effects and unexpected consequences of our characters’ weaknesses. She manages to clearly portray how basic human need and desire, driving us blindly, is often the undoing of otherwise well-meaning humans. Clamoring for what is not ours to the point that our behavior is beyond objectionable is so clearly defined in this masterfully written novel, that it causes us to pause for introspection and personal inventory.
A story that stays with you for days after completion, this wonderfully crafted work digs deeply into human emotion. Is it perfect? No, it isn’t, but it is still a wonderful read despite a few flaws. Mostly, and despite usually great prose, there were spots in this novel that were marred with poor editing and proofreading.Read more ›
