Just finished reading this it took me three days, and I work full time!!...it started of with what I thought was a unnecessary explanation of a small boys adverture, but it needed this to lay the story so to speak, anyway the boy grows to a man, and then the fun begins, he is a family Genealogist, and what starts of as a normal bit of family history gets deeper and deeper and even deeper, it was full of surprises,twist and turns, and I never guessed what was going to happen next, no matter how far you can dig he digged deeper, about three quarter's of the way thought I had to put this book down and walk away from it from the evening, I just had to get my head arounded what had happened, as it seems quite possible it could in real life, strange because before hand I was just enjoying it and thought, 'this would never happen in real life' I have now finished the winding up of the story, and yes it had a very good end, can't say much more or else it will spoil the story, but it is a mans story of finding the truth about his old auntie, and 'not everything is as it seems, and it will make be think about judging people, until you walk in their shoes, you just don't know what they are carrying....well worth a read especially if you like family history, I was going to give it a 4 star, as it was good, but after reading all of it, it really needs a 5 star, this author deserves 5 stars for writing this book so clearly that you can follow it, and for all the hard work they have put in, pulling it all together..really enjoyed it.....Lilly

I enjoyed this book and thought I had it all worked out at one point only to be proved wrong in the next chapter. Lots of twists and turns that kept me thinking I knew what was coming only to be proved wrong in the next chapter. Some reviews criticised how often the author mentioned the character was a landscape gardener but to be honest it was relevant to some degree. I don't really understand how things work in America with burial plots and some of it seemed strange to me in the UK. However it did not detract from the story.

The book would have been far better (and probably half the length) if the pointless repetition had been removed and it had actually been planned or edited properly - I gave up counting the number of times I was informed that the main character was a landscaper.

There were also basic errors with the genealogy - your grandmother's aunt is not your great aunt - she is your 2x great aunt, for example.

It was a cleverly contrived story that failed to deliver a good book - of course that's a personal opinion and others may not share it.

The story is gripping, but there is a lot of repetition. It reads rather like a schoolboy's "What I did on my holidays" essay, but is 60 times the length (indeed, it is much too long). It falls into the trap (common to first-person narratives) of having too many sentences beginning, "I ..." or "Then I ..."

But its worst failing (which it shares with almost all self-published books) is that there has been no checking of the text by someone who understands grammar and punctuation. It is littered with tense changes within a sentence, misuse of the imperfect instead of the past participle (e.g. "She had saw ..."), and silly mistakes not noticeable to a spell-checker (e.g. "addition" for "edition", "and" for "an", "than" for "that"). The punctuation is almost random. Authors: ask someone competent to read your text BEFORE you publish it!

This book left me on the edge of my seat wanting to know more as I am into genealogy myself, so I can relate to everything he says. The mysteries that he unearthed , well, I began to believe that the story was fiction as he had such luck in unravelling the clues in this story. Very different story to which I thoroughly enjoyed.
